President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has appointed Mr. Shaakaa Chira as the substantive Auditor-General of the Federation


Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, announced this in a statement on Friday.

He said the President exercised the powers vested in him by Section 86 of the 1999 Constitution (Amended).
