The Accountant General of the federation, Ahmed Idris, has charged members of the Association of Forensic and Investigation Auditors (AFIA) to be proactive in mediating on issues that are likely to lead to the breakdown of law and order in their respective domains by giving credible information and reporting corrupt financial practitioners.
Idris who said this when members of the association paid him a courtesy visit at the Treasury House in Abuja also disclosed that government is making effort to address the socio-economic issues of insecurity and removal of corrupt practices in the system which is what the present government stands for.
He assured the group of federal government’s partnership and support on any move geared towards fighting corruption in the system and urged them to buy the said idea.
President of the Association, Mrs. Enape Victoria in her remarks, expressed contentment at the ‘good work’ presently being carried out at the treasury complex and urged the AGF to improve the partnership in the area of training of the Treasury staff on Forensic Audit and Investigation to promote transparency and accountability as well as eradicate corruption and financial malpractices in Nigeria.
The Association also used the opportunity to confer a honourary Fellowship Award of AFIA on the AGF.
