Alleged N80bn Fraud: Minister Suspends AGF From Office

(Last Updated On: 2022-05-18)


The minister of finance, budget and national planning, Zainab Ahmed, has suspended Ahmed Idris, the accountant general of the federation, indefinitely.

This is coming two days after his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over an alleged N80 billion fraud.

In a letter dated May 18, 2022, Ahmed said the suspension “without pay” was to allow for “proper and unhindered investigation” in line with public service rules.

He is not expected to come to office or contact any official in his officer except for any disciplinary hearing that may be advised.
