ANAN Plans To Establish New Polytechnic.
The President of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN), Prof. Muhammad Mainoma has announced that plans are underway to obtain a licence for the establishment of a polytechnic in Keffi, Nasarawa State.
Mainoma, who is at the ‘tail end of his tenure, gave this hint at a dinner organised by the FCT 1 ANAN branch in his honour.
The ANAN President confirmed that talks were at an advanced stage with the National Board for Technical Education, NBTE to secure ANAN Polytechnic accreditation this year.
He said: “Site has already been determined. We are waiting for them (NBTE) to inspect and give us a licence. Very soon, you will also be hearing about ANAN Polytechnic in Keffi.
“While the polytechnic will commence with about five different programmes including Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Accounting and others, our university, for now, is just for Accounting, taxation, financial management and related matters,” he said.
The event also coincided with the launching of the maiden edition of ANAN FCT 1 magazine – “Accountants’ Voice.”
Chairman of FCT 1 branch of ANAN, Mr Wahab Omoniyi expressed gratitude to his team for offering the needed support in piloting the affairs of the branch despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which was at its peak when they were elected.
He hailed Prof. Mainoma for setting the pace through visionary leadership, which he said, has helped the branch in recording some of its achievements so far.
It would be recalled that the ANAN University in Plateau State was recently granted an operational licence by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
