President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of Mr. Shaakaa Chira as the substantive Auditor-General of the Federation, as recommended by the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC).
Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser on media and publicity disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.

According to Ngelale, the President relied on thr
powers vested in him by Section 86 of the 1999 Constitution (Amended), to appoint Chira to the new position.
“President Bola Tinubu expects the new Auditor-General to justify the confidence reposed in him and to live up to the high expectations that Nigerians have concerning the execution of the Renewed Hope Agenda of his administration,” the statement said. (vitalnewsngr.com)
