Mr. Anamekwe Chukwunyere Nwabuoku has been appointed as the Accountant-General of the Federation by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Nwabuoku will take over till the EFCC investigation against the suspended AGF, Ahmad Idris, is completed.
Bashir Ahmed, Buhari’s former assistant, confirmed the news on Sunday.
We previously reported that Zainab Ahmed, the Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, had suspended Idris last week.
His suspension came after he was detained for allegedly diverting funds and laundering N80 billion by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC.
“Mr. Anamekwe Chukwunyere Nwabuoku has been assigned to supervise the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, pending the conclusion of the EFCC investigation into the suspended AGF, Ahmad Idris,” he said on Twitter.
