A statement signed by Rotimi Ajayi, on Thursday in Abuja, said that the most senior director in the office, Adolphus Aghughu, would take charge until a substantive Auditor-General is appointed.

During his stewardship, he carried out several specialised audits ranging from the Integrated Personnel Payment System; Government Integrated Financial Management and Information; and the Nigerian Immigration Service e-passport system.
