However, corporates are prone to problems of non-compliance and misreporting on part of the board of directors and because of the financial and administration malpractices at management level. Increasing cases of corrupt practices at the administration and management level expose the stakeholders to risk. To protect the shareholders from risks and to protect their interests it is necessary that an effective mechanism be put in place for governing corporates.”
