This year’s Annual Accountants’ Week celebrations have been ushered in with a Health Walk beginning from the Aviation Social Centre through the 37 Military Hospital, Flagstaff House, Danquah Circle, Police Hospital, Togo Embassy, and the Lands Commission in Accra.

The Walk, organized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG), aimed to imbue in all members of ICAG, staff and students the importance of physical exercise to one’s health.

Addressing participants at the Aviation Social Centre at the end of the Walk on Saturday, the President of ICAG, Prof. Kwame Boasiako Omane-Antwi, urged the entire membership of ICAG and students of the Institute to lead healthy lifestyles and be of sound mind as they could only be effective and efficient at their work if they were in good health.

Prof. Omane-Antwi urged members of the Institute to contribute to the deepening of Ghana’s current democratic dispensation by volunteering as Returning Officers during the 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections.

He said integrity being the hallmark of ICAG, he was of the view that members of the Institute could offer their services to ensure a free and fair elections.

Other activities marking this year’s Accountancy Week celebrations include a church service on April 26, a news conference in Accra on April 27, two-day Annual Accountants’ Conference on April 28 and 29, and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of ICAG on Thursday, April 30, all in the Central regional capital, Cape Coast.
