Christmas is here!

Christmas party season began for me in Lagos with the ACCA 10th Anniversary in Nigeria dinner.  It was a lovely do, with food, live music, lots of accountants, and of course the very tipsy older accountant  who gave us ‘young ones’ a talk on ‘the morality of esteeming financial consideration above ethics and experience gathering‘ – his exact words 🙂   COPYRIGHT © countingonaccounting and Nuan Moji, 2015.
