The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has charged accountants in the state to be value-driven in discharging their functions as accountants.

This, according to the governor, will “ensure that the limited resources at the disposal of the government are effectively and efficiently utilised to better the lives of the majority of the citizenry.”

Sanwo-Olu gave the charge on Thursday while delivering a keynote address at the 13th Annual Public Lecture of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (Lagos State Public Service Chapter), held at Lagos Country Club, Ikeja.

“Value Creation in Public Service,” the governor said the topic was not only appropriate but timely as it came at a time when all the nations of the world were experiencing a high level of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity in their economic activities.

Represented at the event by the Lagos State Accountant-General, Dr Abiodun Muritala, Sanwo-Olu disclosed that “about one-third of global Gross Domestic Product is made up by the public sector and this is being invested in delivering high-quality infrastructural, educational, healthcare and other services in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner.”

He used the occasion to advocate “integrated reporting of government policies, plans and programmes.”
