Buhari Replaces Accountant General Suspended For N80 Billion Fraud

Buhari has replaced the Accountant General who was suspended for a N80 billion fraud.

Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Mr. Anamekwe Chukwunyere Nwabuoku to supervise the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, (AGF).

This online news outlet reports that Nwabuoku will take over the position pending the outcome of the EFCC’s investigation into the suspended AGF, Ahmad Idris. The EFCC is a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes like advance fee fraud and money laundering.

President Buhari confirmed the replacement of the suspended Accountant General and the appointment of Nwabuoku in a tweet on the microblogging site Twitter by Bashir Ahmad, the President’s Personal Assistant on New Media.
