The newly appointed Accountant-General of the Federation, Oluwatoyin Madein, on Friday vowed that there would be zero tolerance for corruption.
Madein said this in Abuja when she took over from the outgoing AGF, Sylva Okolieaboh.
She stated, “We all know that the Office of the Accountant General has suffered some turmoil in the last one year. The outgoing acting AGF has just mentioned how he was able to stem the tide. I pray to continue from there to ensure that this Treasury House moves from strength to strength.
“We will move back to the glorious days of our forefathers but I need your cooperation. We must be guided by the general principles of zero tolerance for corruption in discharging our statutory responsibilities so that we can diligently redeem the image of this great office.”
The new AGF who was until her appointment the Director of Finance and Accounts in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, said she would also fully digitalise the management of the finances of the Federal Government.
