President of the Institute of Chartered Accounts Ghana, Christian Sottie is calling for the establishment of a collage of accountancy to help train quality accountants for the nation.

He added that the economy of Ghana is growing and if proper structures are not put in place to train and develop quality accountants, investors will not have confidence in our economy.

According to Christian Sottie University of Ghana over the period had tried training accountants but did not work so they had to stop.

ICAGH aliened the syllabus of Cape Cost University and they are doing well in training accountant, whiles University of Ghana has been brought on board, he said.

Mr. Christian Sottie argued that ICAGH needs more than a University training accountants, “we need a college to fully train professional accountants”.

“We have law school and medical school, but we do not have accountancy school, we believe that if we can do this will bring quality accountants and that is one thing we are working towards with the Institute of Chartered Accounts England and Wales” (ICAEW), he said.

Again we will be able to serve the country better when this is done, we are not going to ask for subvention as a regulator, we are not even complaining.
