The Auditor-General of the Federation, AuGF, Anthony Ayine, has retired from service.

Recall that Ayine was appointed the AuGF on Jan. 12, 2017 by President Muhammadu Buhari.

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.

Mr Ayine also ensured strong collaboration with local and international stakeholders at the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions and African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions.
