The HoCSF instructed permanent secretaries to send information on qualified directors in Grade 17 to her by no later than 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6, 2022 in a memo titled, “Commencement of the process of appointment of a substantive Accountant-General of the Federation.”

The memo listed the credentials of level 17 officers who were qualified for the job.

“Officers undergoing disciplinary proceedings are excluded from the selection process while those who have attained the position of Substantive Director (Grade 17) on or before January 1, 2020 and are not retiring from the service earlier than December 31, 2024 are eligible to participate.”

Senior government officials were not persuaded to address the claim that they had borrowed money to pay salaries.

The AG-F should be in a better position to clarify it, according to the Ministry of Finance, which directed this reporter to him.

Henshaw Ogubike, a spokesman for the Office of AG-F, stated: “The man who granted the interview is not around for the time being.”

The Ejes Gist Newspaper was informed by a representative of the Debt Management Office (DMO) that “you probably should clarify from the AGF or FMFBNP. Direct deposits of funds from the DMO are made into the FGN’s accounts at the CBN for use in capital projects. As you are aware, the DMO doesn’t distribute money.

“The AG-F is in charge of managing the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s Treasury. According to Nigeria’s federal republic’s constitution, the office holder is frequently chosen by the president of Nigeria for a four-year term.
