AN EVALUATION OF ACCOUNTING PROCEDURES IN NIGERIAN PUBLIC ENTERPRISES

ABSTRACT
The basic concern of
this study is the evaluation of accounting procedures in Nigerian public
enterprise.
Nigeria
public enterprises are characterized with embezzlement, fraud,
misappropriation, theft, negligence and non-observance of the existing polices.
These were deemed to have been possible because they were there were no
adequate and efficient accounting systems and procedures and were found, they
were either not properly adherent or weak and effective.
Data were obtained
using the primary and secondary methods of data collection. Primary data were
collected through personal interviews with the accounting officers of the
corporation through open-ended questionnaires while secondary source data were
collected through journals and the observation of prepared annual reports of
the corporation. The data collected were analyzed using percentages and
chi-square.
          The analysis of data revealed that
accounting procedures employed by the corporation were observed to a large
extent, that corporations have complied with almost all the principles
governing governmental agencies. It can also be deduced that non-conformity
with theoretical principles governing governmental agencies is not a problem
faced by corporations.
In order to ensure the
efficiency of accounting procedures in Nigerian public enterprises the
following should be strictly adhered to:
Ø Staffs
must be motivated.
Ø Qualified
personnel should be employed.
Ø Proper
accounting standard should be adopted.
Ø Effective
administrative control should be put in place.
Ø The
accounting system should comply with statutory and legal requirement of the
country.
Ø Accounting
department should be computerized.
