Following the resignation of Jonah Otunla, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is conducting a test to select the next Accountant General of the Federation.
The President had appointed a Director in the office of AGF, Mohammed Kyari, as the acting AGF pending the appointment of a substantive Accountant General of the federation.
According to report, Officials in the office of the Head of Service of the Federation will be conducting a second round of examinations following the conclusion of the first round of the test, which was held yesterday at the conference hall of the office of the Head of Service at the federal secretariat complex Abuja.
A source at the HOS office, who preferred anonymity revealed that about 20 eligible candidates were eventually dropped after the first sitting, which took over five hours to complete.
“Subsequently, the other 40 candidates were moved to a different location in Garki district where they still undertook that round of exams.”
“They would all converge in the same venue today (Tuesday) and those who were not successful in the second exam would be dropped, while the others who made it to the final round will take their last tests,” he concluded.
