A final-year student of Accounting at Landmark University, Omu-Aran Kwara State, Mr Oluwatobi Oladiran, emerged one of the top three global affiliates of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in Nigeria at the December 2016 examination.
Oladiran was officially presented with his award at the Event Centre, Alausa, Ikeja Lagos, where ACCA Head in Nigeria, Mr Olatunji Oyeleye, described Oladiran’s victory as ‘inspiring and noteworthy’. He said the awardee completed all stages of ACCA as an undergraduate. “This is enough to motivate other students on their membership journey,” he said.
Oladiran in a chat recalled how he pursued the milestone as a result of his passion for success in the accounting career.
According to him, he had earlier fulfilled the requirements of the Institute of Chartered Accountant of Nigeria (ICAN) for membership.
Oladiran attributed his new status by ACCA and ICAN to Landmark University’s continuous effort towards full career attainment for any student, who passes through the institution”.
He said the institution’s conducive learning environment coupled with well-equipped Centre for Learning Resources (Landmark Library) and high-profile faculty members, constituted major factors that led to his success story.
Despite the workload and the challenges he faced during the period of ICAN and ACCA examinations, he said the aforementioned factors encouraged him to be ‘focused on his academic pursuit’.
Aside ICAN and ACCA, Landmark University is in collaboration with other professional regulatory bodies, such as the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN), Computer Professionals Registration Council of Nigeria (CPN), among others. Landmark University continues to promote an inspiring ambience for raising the global leaders of tomorrow.
