Don’t connive with suppliers to over-invoice – University Dean
The Dean of the University of Ghana Business School, Prof. Joshua Yindenaba Abor, has deplored accountants who connive with suppliers and others to over-invoice in order to embezzle funds and perpetuate fraud.
He stated that nations and corporate bodies thrived on sound ethical values, noting that trust was key for survival under any setting.
“Financial systems and the going concern principle will fail once trust and ethical behavior are neglected,”Prof. Abor said when he addressed the 26th graduation ceremony of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG) in Accra.
