President Buhari has approved the appointment of Dr. (Mrs) Oluwatoyin Madein, as the new substantive Accountant-general of the Federation (AGF).
This was contained in a circular released and dated May 19, 2023, which was signed by the Director, Communications, Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Mohammed Abdullahi Ahmed, on Friday, in Abuja.
Mohammed Ahmed, Director of Communications, Office of the Head of Civil Service, said her appointment takes immediate effect as it followed the successful conduct of a selection process to fill the existing vacancy.
The vacancy followed the arrest of former AGF, Ahmed Idris, in July 2022, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over the alleged misappropriation of N109bn and his subsequent suspension and prosecution.
Oluwatoyin Madein and 19 others were shortlisted for the position back in January. Until her appointment, she was the Director of Finance and Accounts in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.
