Sylva Okolieaboh, a director at the Treasury Single Account (TSA) department, has reportedly emerged as acting accountant-general of the federation, replacing Anamekwe Nwabuoku.

TheCable said an insider revealed on Monday that Okolieaboh’s appointment followed an “in-house reshuffle exercise”.

Mr Okolieaboh is a chartered accountant and fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).

He has experience in public financial management (PFM), financial reporting, cash management/Treasury Single Account, revenue/collections management, expenditure, and management internal control.

A few weeks after Mr Nwabuoku was named the acting accountant-general, reports emerged that he was “under the radar of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over corruption allegations”.

In May, Mr Nwabuoku was appointed after the arrest of Mr Ahmed Idris who was the then accountant-general by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of N80 billion fraud.

Last month, Mr Nwabuoku claimed that Nigeria is borrowing money to pay salaries.

“We have to borrow to augment payment of salaries and wages. This shows we are in very difficult times. Government income is highly challenged,” Nwabuoku had said.

The government was said to be uncomfortable with his comments.
