1.0             INTRODUCTION

1.1                BACKGROUNDS OF THE STUDY

The term audit is derived from the Latin word “Audire which means to hear in the holding days. The origin of an audit dates back to the ancient times when the land owners allows tenants farmers to work on the land whilst the land owners themselves did not become involved to the business of farming. The Landlords relied upon an overseer who listened to the report of stewardship given by the tenants. The account of the parties responsible for non financial transaction is used to be called and hear the explanation needed by the person who held the account know as an auditor. Originally, the function of an auditor is to ascertain the fact, whether the accounting party has properly received the receipts and payment of cash on behalf of his principal and whether the financial statement prepared before him show true and fair view but the scope of audits today has been wide, because the modern auditing is a complex operation calling on a wide variety of skills varying from auditing and financial accounting knowledge to statistics, computing and communication skills. This therefore become the most important part of the auditors duties owning the enlargement of size and complexity of business enterprises. Today, the concept and scope of auditing has changed a comprehensive definition of auditing given has Roberts Eschlessors as quoted by Jagdish Drakash in his book. Adding, principle practice and problem (1990) says auditing is an examination of financial statements, records and related operation to determine adherence is generally accepted accounting principle, management policies restated requirement. In this definition, emphasis laid on auditing being related to operations and how far the adhere to management policies or stated requirements, in other words we find out that we needs to introduce the effectiveness and breakable control of the system. What then is this internal control system? Internal control system is the while system of control, financial or otherwise established by the management in order to carry on the business of the enterprise in an orderly and efficient manner ensuring adherence to management policies, safe guarding the assets and securing as far as possible the completeness and accuracy of records.
