What I Do

I’m currently responsible for SOX compliance reporting and Internal Controls which helps me have deep dive knowledge of corporate Finance & Reporting; and also make me the go-to person on Finance Policy related issues. My role also includes Tax Management for Corporate reporting and employee compensation analysis and review, Cash Management, Budget Control, Fixed Assets Management and Procurement.

Professionally, I’m a member of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and also engage in faculty related activities of my district in areas relating to International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) and COSO for Internal Controls Documentation and Corporate Governance.

Day In My Life
My day starts with taking notes of my ‘To Do’ list, checking my calendar for scheduled meetings/task, reading emails and getting down to business of the day. Coaching, Knowledge sharing and Collaboration are typical of my daily activities while I’ll stop at nothing to improve and learn.

Activities of the day also includes conference calls on statutory matters, process improvements and compliance evaluation sessions with teams from other locations and providing support to project teams on varied issues.

Outside the Office

Youth Development, Sports and Music are my world outside Accenture. I grew up playing the piano at concerts and presently lead my local church choir and play the organ. It fascinates me how much music transforms people; and using this as a tool to develop young adults you choose music as a career. I’m a fan of Chelsea FC and look forward to meeting Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba at the world cup in Brazil.
