The security and exchange commission has debunked reports in some electronic and print media, insinuating that it had not audited its financial statements since 2014.
The commission made the statement in a press release posted on its verified Facebook page on Friday.
The statement said contrary to the claims, the Commission as a law-abiding agency has duly audited its financial accounts year after year before and onward from 2014, and has submitted these to the relevant agencies statutorily empowered by the Federal Government to receive same, including the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning; Office of the Auditor General of the Federation; Fiscal Responsibility Commission; Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, as well as the appropriate committees of the National Assembly.
“The Commission, being a strong promoter of world-class corporate governance standards, hereby restates its commitment to upholding such ideals and strongly advise persons with requests for information to channel such to the Commission via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and to which the Commission would respond accordingly.” It added.
The security and exchange commission also added that the dissemination of factual information is critical to complementing the efforts of the Federal Government for the growth and development of the capital market and Nigeria’s economy.
