Neglect Of Internal Auditing Aiding Corruption In Nigeria – SWAIAP President ~ Truth Reporters

President of the Society for West African Internal Audit Practitioners (SWAIAP), Patrick Nzechukwu, has linked the neglect of internal auditing by suc­cessive governments to the persistence of corruption in Nigeria.

The SWAIAP President made the disclosure at a briefing ahead of the organisation’s inau­gural induction, investiture and fellowship award billed to hold in Lagos on Septem­ber 25, 2021, with the theme: ‘Internal Auditing: Effective Tool for Anti-Corruption, Risk Management, Controls and Corporate Governance.’

He called on government to demonstrate political will to fight corrup­tion using preventive meth­ods.

Nzechukwu, who would be officially installed the President/Chief Ex­ecutive Officer of SWAIAP, said that government was not sincere in the fight against corruption, saying "if they were, there should be overt commitment to encourage internal audit in ministries, departments and agencies,"

He called for a review of the recognition of external audit over internal audit.
