1.1 Background of the study
Accounting plays a vital role in the promotion of economic growths and enhancement of any organization.This important role which accounting plays cannot be over-emphasized. Hence every business organization uses the financial report to communicate information about its performance, resources and obligations to interested parties. And establishment without proper financial management and accountability is doomed since the whole world is turning out to a competitive global village. The ability to survival, rivalry depends on the power control of the resources of public organization. This by implication means that there should be checks and balances especially in disbursement of public fund in order for the organization to form. in Nigeria, there are various stating requirements that must be considered in the perception of find reports which include:
i. The companies and Allied matter Ael 1990 (as amended)
ii. Accounting standard and predicted by the Nigerian Accounting standard Board.
iii. Other statutory legislations eg. Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)’s product of Guidelines and stock Exchange rates.
iv. Company’s Accounting policies. The Acts and Bodies are put in place to guide and regulate the activities of accounting. The issue is: are they judiciously kept? Inspite of the existence of accounting professional in the accounting in most public organization, misappropriation of fund has been the order of two day. The management officials often interferes in the activities of accounting personnel. Those interferences are most often not in accordance with accounting rules and regulations, but to satisfy their personal interest. The resultant affect of thus, of course, is misappropriation of public fund. Although there are audit sections established in public organization, yet the funds misappropriate are not detected and even when detected are most often not pointed out as the auditors are given some packages as bribe. It is worthy to note here that most frauds are committed in conjunction with either the accounting staff or the top management staff. Accounting staffs serve in a particular unit over many years. Thus practice does not anger well with the accounting status of any organization, hence it can lead to fraud as well as inefficiency in the operating of the accounting personnel.
The question here is has can organizations must utilize the accounts department to control her expenditure, to ensure effective financial prudence? Hence to interest of the researcher in this research project with a focus on the Nigeria Television Authority. NTA Annual 8, Enugu.
