In practice, you are not yet an accountant until you sit for ICAN or other accounting professional examinations and passed all the prescribed examinations, then, been inducted by the authority of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAN) of Nigeria before you get a professional license to practice.
Either of these two can earn you a professional recognition globally and you can also be self-employed.
The truth is, anyone can be an accountant.
