Accountants urged to uphold high sense of integrity

Accra, March 19, GNA – Major Albert Don-Chebe (Rtd), the Director-General of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, has urged accountants in the country to exhibit high sense of professionalism and integrity in their field of practice.

He said integrity “is critical to all professional practice and fundamental for the development and sustenance of loyalty of both clients and employees”.

Maj Don-Chebe gave the advice on Thursday in Accra at the induction ceremony of 248 accountants by the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana.

He said “it behooves on qualified accountants to uphold professional universal ethic to safe their image and strive to develop and maintain personal and professional integrity in spite of the tendency to be unprofessional.

Maj Don-Chebe advised the inductees to refrain from dishonourable and dishonest activities, capable of impairing their personal dignity and the trust and confidence of clients and employees.

‘Be mindful of the power of perceptions and strive to develop an atmosphere of accountability and transparency in your endeavours and create a climate of reassurance and trust to develop a reputation for candid, truthful and non-manipulative service’ he added.

Mr Seth Terkpe, the Minister of Finance, commended professional accountants working in both the public and private sector and appealed to them not to relent in their efforts in improving the standard of the profession.

He said the problem of the payroll in the public sector was lack of human resource and was optimistic that the ceremony would bring on board more qualified practitioners in addressing public service accountancy problems.
