Idris takes over as AGF in Nigeria

The newly appointed Accountant General of the Federation, Alh Amed Idris ‎on Monday formally assumed office and vowed zero tolerance for corruption at the Treasury House.
‎Idris formally took over from the former acting AGF, Mr. Mohammad Dikwa at about 5:30pm on Monday.
He called for cooperation among all members of staff and departments to be able to achieve the strategic role entrusted on the treasury.

He pledged that under his leadership, corruption would not be allowed to thrive among members of staff of the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
Idris also said he would build on the achievements of his predecessor to take the treasury to an enviable height.
He said the OAGF under him would ensure transparency and accountability, and probity in the management of the nation’s treasury.
He said, “Corruption as a national challenge cannot occur without active collaboration and connivance of finance managers.
“Officers with corrupt tendencies must be prepared to purge themselves of it as my treasury under my watch would maintain zero tolerance for corruption.
“The treasury is entrusted with public funds and therefore the responsibility of providing adequate accounting system and controls with best practices to ensure revenues accruing to government are fully collected and accounted for and authorised payments are used for purposes meant; and that assets and liabilities are fully recorded and financial statements are rendered timely.”
Speaking earlier, Dikwa called for support for the new AGF noting that the ultimate target of the current reforms in the treasury was to allow for zero tolerance for corruption.
