Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests. Before I start my remarks, may I offer my sincere thanks to the Institute Chartered Accountants of Nigeria for inviting me to present at this event. It is a privilege and a pleasure to be here. I also bring you warm greetings from IFAC President Fermin del Valle and IFAC Chief Executive Ian Ball. I principally will speak about the challenges and opportunities in implementing international standards but would also like to cover a few other topics towards the end of my remarks.
