Dear Council members and Body of Past President,

Petition to Uphold ICAN Presidency Succession Tradition


There is a long-standing and widely acclaimed tradition of Presidency succession in ICAN.

We have been made aware that at the last Council meeting following the investiture of the 58th President of the Institute, an attempt was made to disregard the long-time tradition of movement in the lineup of the members of the Presidency; which resulted in the swearing-in of other members of the Presidency being aborted

We have also been made to understand that this was because the Council was unable to abide with this age-long tradition given the stalemate within the Council in adopting this tradition for the offices of Deputy Vice President 1 (DVP1) and Deputy Vice President 2 (DVP2).

Our Prayer

Our preference and prayer is a continuation of the longstanding tradition, to avoid setting a precedent that could potentially derail our Institute; and deviation from which could bring about great divisions amongst our membership.

However, if in the wisdom of our esteemed council members, a deviation is to be proposed, it should be premised on well defined and clear parameters or reasoning that will withstand intellectual challenge and comprehension by the wider membership, and such should be comunicated in a clear and transparent manner.


Concerned Members of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN)
