Treasury Will Be Prudently And Transparently Managed – AGF

Ahmed IdrisThe Accountant General of the Federation, Alhaji Ahmed Idris, has vowed that the nation’s treasury under his watch would be prudently and transparently managed.
The AGF made the pledge when members of the Civil Society of Nigeria, an Umbrella body representing over 25 civil society organizations in Nigeria, visited him at the Treasury House to congratulate him on his appointment as the new AGF.
Mr. Idris called on the CSOs in the country to join hands with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in its campaign to fight corruption at all levels of governance by reporting any individual or organizations engaged in corrupt practices.
A statement from the AGF office on Sunday quoted Idris to have said that as civil societies, they should act as whistle blowers by reporting all forms of corrupt practices witnessed in the system.
This, he stressed, should be done objectively without fear or favour.
He said, “No society will develop if it indulges in any form of corruption and as a nation, if we do not imbibe the culture of good governance, transparency, accountability and strict compliance to rules and regulation stipulated in the relevant documents guiding the nation, we cannot reach our destination as a nation”.
The AGF said his resolve to ensure prudency and transparency in the management of the nation’s treasury is to ensure that the change promised by President Buhari is positively reflected in the lives of Nigerians.
Earlier, the president of the group, Mr. Femi Osabinu, pledged the support of the association in ensuring that the nation’s finances are efficiently managed.
