The Nigerian Senate has confirmed the nomination of Anthony Ayine as the Auditor-General of the Federation.
President Muhammadu Buhari had last year nominated Mr. Ayine to fill the post currently held by Florence Anyanwu in acting capacity.
The confirmation of Mr. Ayine followed the presentation of the report on his screening by the chairman of the committee on public accounts, Andy Uba.
Mr. Uba said though there were petitions against Mr. Ayine’s nomination, his competence was not disputed. He, therefore, recommended that the nominee be confirmed.
