FG Suspends Corporate Governance Code

It was gathered from some of our reporters that the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment  released a press statement.

Here it is Below.

Press Release January 9, 2017


The Corporate Governance Code issued by the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRC) has been suspended, pending a detailed review, extensive consultation with stakeholders and reconstitution of the board of the FRC

“Government remains committed to restoring and enhancing market confidence and improving the Ease of Doing Business in Nigeria,” said Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah

He continued: “Government is committed to strengthening FRC and enhancing its capacity to fulfill its core mandate.”

FRC is one of the parastatals under the supervision of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment.

The Council is responsible for setting and promoting compliance with standards for accounting, financial reporting and auditing in Nigeria. It also regulates the practices of professionals involved in financial reporting and promotes good practices in financial reporting and corporate governance in Nigeria.

It was hinted that this was prompted after the rumor of the popular man of God and General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG)  Pastor E.A Adeboye has stepped down.
