In a country where spurious organization spring up now and gain to challenge properly constituted professional organization purely on non-professional, non-academic basis but primarily on ill-motivated necessary grounds.  Professional bodies and practitioners naturally face special problems of compliance with laid down standard and ensuring profitable practice.

Pone of the significance of this research is that it forms a major part of the final examination of the project writer himself and therefore, intended to be one of the major prerequisites for eventual completion of his courses of study.

Besides, the fact of being a major determinant for the award of his Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Accountancy, it is however significant to undertake such study because it intends to give the researcher a thorough and fuller understanding of the subject matter which is titled “the role of auditing in a developing economy Nigeria Experience”.
