Alliott Group adds member firm in Nigeria

Alliott Group has added accountancy firm G.E. Osagie & Co to its association in Nigeria.

Established in 1997, G.E. Osagie & Co counts three partners and offers services in audit, assurance and consulting.

Commenting on the membership, a spokesperson for the firm said: "We wanted to find an international professional association that could give us a truly international reach, [...] this alliance will enable our existing and potential clients to extend the frontiers of their international business."

An attractive but challenging market
Since overtaking South Africa as the continent's fastest growing economy last year, Nigeria has become an increasingly sought-after market for the global accountancy profession.

However, corruption and a lack of transparency remain cause of concern for professional services firms in the country.

Earlier this month, a PwC forensic audit report into $20bn in missing oil revenues allegedly misplaced by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) became a focal issue in the country's 14 February general election.
