Accountability: Nigerians Look Up To You For Solutions – CSOs Task New AGF

The newly appointed acting Accountant General of the Federation (AGF), Anamekwe Nwabuoku, has been tasked by the coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), to fight corruption within the system by conducting his duties with every sense of transparency and accountability.

The Organization urged the acting AGF to run the affairs of the office with the highest level of accountability and transparency so as not to allow any window for corruption and or any kind of fund misappropriations, considering the circumstances that warranted his appointment.

This was contained in a signed letter addressed to the acting AGF by the President of Civil Society Group for Good Governance (CSGGG), Ogakwu Dominic, a copy of which was also made available to journalists in Abuja.

Dominic informed the Acting AGF that the group has since begun a media campaign for public awareness on the statutory roles of the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF).

He further urged him to use his wealth of experience and bring a lasting solution to challenges revolving around the country’s financial sector.

As contained in the letter, “In light of the foregoing, the group has since embarked on a media awareness campaign to sensitize the minds of citizens on the statutory roles and mandates of the Office of the Accountant General of Federation.”

“Additionally, among other things, the campaign is also aimed at drawing the attention of the new overseer of the OAGF on the volatile issues around the financial sector which Nigerians will keenly observe and equally look up to you to proffer everlasting solutions.

“These issues include but are not limited to; lingering strikes by the members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) with the payment platform, i.e. Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) that is being managed by the OAGF as one of the major reasons behind the persistent industrial actions.

While noting that the appointment of Nwabuoku is well deserved as it was done based on qualifications and track records of his success, Dominic said the
appointment came at a time when expertise was needed to rejuvenate the country’s economy.

“The appointment came at a critical time where capable hands like your humble self with skills and expertise are needed to use their knowledge to turn around and rejuvenate the country’s financial and economic sector.

“And we believed that your antecedents at the various places where you worked earlier speak volumes of what you can accomplish now that you are entrusted with this present national assignment.”

Recall that the acting AGF was appointed on May 23 to oversee the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation after the suspension of the erstwhile AGF, Ahmed Idris following his probe by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) due to alleged fund misappropriations.
