She however promised to take staff welfare as a priority for them to be above board.
“I crave the support of the staff and past Accountants General to bring the ethics, core values and the dictates of the profession to our job,” she said.
A former Accountant General of the Federation, Dr Ibrahim Dankwambo, said there is work to be done.
“The Treasury must stand very firm. Anything you are looking for is here. The Treasury is good, bad and ugly. Use it very well,” he said.
He also charged her to be good to the staff. “It’s a high-risk job,” he said.
Also speaking, another past Accountant General, Mr. Kayode Naiyeju, said the new AG should live above pecuniary gains.
