14 directors shortlisted for Accountant-General of the Federation job
Fourteen directors have been shortlisted for the position of a new Accountant General of the Federation (AGF).
A circular by the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) signed by the Director (Administration), Mariya A. D. Rufai, was received by the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoS) on July 6, 2022.
Rufai said her circular was in response to the directive by the HoS for a list of eligible directors, one of whom will become the AGF.
Most Directors of Finance and Administration (DFAs) in the Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) are more often deployed from the OAGF.
In her letter, Rufai presented “details of the substantive Directors from the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation as requested for your further necessary action” to the HoS.
The 14 directors that will be screened for the position of AGF are: Muhammad Murtala Saleh, Chizea Onochie Peter and Lydia Jafiya Shehu, from OAGF.
Others are: Bakre Modupe Julianah (Ministry of Police Affairs), Danladi Comfort Zakowi (NSCDC), Abah George Fidelis (Nigeria Immigration), Omachi Raymond Omenka (Ministry of Interior) and Ibrahim Saadiyya Jibo (National Boundary Commission).
Those who also made the list are: Moharmmed Aminu YarAbba (Federal Fire Service), Samuel A. Waziri (Ministry of Agric and Rural Development), Mahmud Adam Kambari (North East Development Commission), Mohammed Magaji M. Doho (Federal Ministry of Education), Mufutahu Bukolah (Federal Ministry of Transportation) and Yusuf Abdullahi Musa II (Federal Ministry Information and Culture).
The process of selecting a substantive AGF in recent years has always captured the attention of the public while the government has tried to select who it considers the best from the lot.
