The appointment of Florence Anyanwu as acting Auditor-General of the Federation (AuGF) has been approved by the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC).
Her appointment was contained in a statement issued Tuesday by Olawunmi Ogunmosunle, the Chief Press Secretary, Office of the Auditor-General of the Federation, in Abuja.
The statement said Mrs. Anyanwu took over in acting capacity due to the retirement of Samuel Ukura, who attained the mandatory age of 60 years on June 5, 2016.
It would be recalled that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir David Lawal, had directed the FCSC to appoint an acting AuGF, pending the appointment of a substantive one within three months.
“Mrs Florence Anyanwu was the Director of Audit in-charge of Legislature, Judiciary and Security Agencies Department of the Office of the Auditor-General for the Federation, Nigeria.
“She has more than 32 years’ experience as a professional auditor. She joined the OAuGF in 1984 as Auditor 1, and became Director of Audit in 2011.
“She earned her membership of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria in 2004 and was conferred a fellow in 2013.
“She is also a member of Chartered Institute of Taxation Nigeria, 2011, and Nigeria Institute of Management in 2004”, the statement said.
