As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, New Nigeria Development Company (NNDC) has graduated 734 Chartered Accountants from 2007 to date.
The Chairman of the Conglomerate Mallam Tanimu Yakubu disclosed this in a speech he delivered at the 50th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the company held in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, the graduates were trained at the NNDC/ICAN Centers located in Kaduna, Kano, Ilorin and Gombe respectively.
He added that notwithstanding the tough operating challenges, the company continued in its efforts of developing quality manpower for the north and the country in general.
The chairman said despite that the country economy in 2017 gradually emerged out of recession, fundamental macroeconomic challenges have continuously existed against the backdrop of reduced government revenues due to low commodity prices which caused a huge fiscal deficit in public finance.
