Computer has come to stay like the telephone system that has gradually become a life- wire in the communication world. Computer is wading its way through every face of life.

Daily people perceive the irresistible offering of this enigma called computer. No doubt they are unobtrusively getting hypnotized by its alluring kaleido scope on business, domestic, scientific and whole. Have you seen comfortable computerization is becoming synonymous with business? Equipped with very large storage capacity, tallied with very large storage data capacity compiled with powerful and flexible reporting and presented facilities, rolling on its wheel of every redefining the area of life-heap and filling cabinet that used to adorn the offices.
Information technology (IT) shit as a whole is putting a big question mark against the relevance of conventional information gathering.

Nigeria Breweries PLC being one of the industries that incorporated computer system in its department catches our attention in answering the big question posed by computer devices.

The incorporation of computers in Nigeria has necessitated a great change in the role of accounting information in the computer based accounting system.

I also understood that computerized system enables firms to have work schedules and operating instruments for each programme, available, and also in carring out its regular internal auditing of the electronic data processing (EDP) so as to establish all necessary control.

This research was embarked upon to evaluate accounting information in a computerized organization.
