Workers Reject Buhari’s Appointment Of Ayine As Auditor-general by seunmsg(m): 11:34am On Dec 20, 2016
The Office of the Auditor General of the Federation was shut for three hours on Monday following protests by the workers union rejecting the appointment of Anthony Ayine by President Muhammadu Buhari as the Auditor-General for the Federation.

The workers who were also joined in the protest by a coalition of civil society group arrived the Audit House which is the headquarters of the Office of the Auditor General as early as 6am and halted business activities at the office.

In a letter by the president to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki on December, 13, Buhari had noted that in line with constitutional requirement, the Federal Civil Service Commission had recommended Ayine for appointment as the Auditor-General for the Federation.

But the workers said they are rejecting his nomination claiming that as a local government employee, Ayine was not qualified to head the agency.

For over three hours, the workers carried placards which portrayed massages indicating their grievances with the appointment of someone who they claimed was not qualified for the position.

Some of the inscriptions written on the placards are “Bringing an outsider as Auditor General would jeopardize our future,” “We need internal succession,” “We once had an outsider and it failed us.”

Speaking to journalists at the sidelines of the protest, the Chairman of the workers’ union, Mr Aina Abiodun said the workers are rejecting the nominee on the grounds that the office of the Auditor General for the federation is a constitutional office based on career progression.

He said since the office is not a political position, any appointment must be done based on career progression.

He said, “The OAGF is a constitutional office based on career progression and not a political office.

“It is not for the highest bidder. There is career retardation in the office and as such we are asking the president to please help the audit institution to address this anomalies and inadequacies.

“The OAGF can boast of no more than 50 chartered accountants who have put in more than 25 years in service and as such we say no to nomination of Anthony Ayine, we need internal succession.”

The protest which lasted till about 11am was suspended following the intervention of some top directors in the office of the auditor general.

Anthony Ayine is a Southerner from Cross river state who is well qualified for the post but some misguided staff of the office are trying to prevent the senate from confirming his appointment. The president has done well by nominating him, he should be supported by all well meaning Nigerians to succeed as Auditor general for the federation. This is not the time to protest but the time to rally round him in the effort to tackle corruption headlong through the office.

This govt is quack.
Just because IMF requisite for loan is tht u must have an auditor general & because buhari need the loan desperately to enslave our future generation to service loan they know nothing about he now nominated someone from Local govt Employees to man a career professsion like AGOF...
Buhari has really lost touch of reality on ground via ministers with a particular career profession that he appointed to occupy a position different from their field of study.
Chris Ngige come to mind.

The nominee is not just a local government employee, he is the auditor general of local governments in Cross river state. In addition, he's also a qualified chartered accountant with years of experience. The federal civil service commission advertised the position and all qualified professionals applied. Written and oral interview were conducted and he came first in both. The president only accepted the recommendation of the commission. He emerged strictly on merit and not through any undue influence. The protest is absolutely unnecessary.

It is not by ICAN but by merit. He was interviewed alongside directors from the office and he came first. He competed for the post and won on merit, it will be very unfair to deny him the position simply because he is not an insider.

buhari does not obey the principle of professional progression, for example, the current head of customs have never worked in the custom service while the head of dss is a retired officer. enjoy the change you voted for.
