He told the FRCN delegation that “the Federal Government Treasury will continue to implement strategies that will guarantee timely production of general purpose financial statements of the Federal Government. ”

The AGF urged members of the FRCN to holistically enforce policies so as to “ensure optimal compliance by public and private entities.”

Idris Ahmed also approved the constitution of a joint committee comprising officials of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation to work out modalities for the proposed partnership between the two agencies.

Acting Executive Secretary of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, Iheanyi Anyahara, commended the Accountant General of the Federation for the successes so far recorded in the implementation of the Federal Government’s financial management reforms initiatives anchored by the Federal Treasury.
