Buhari Appoints PwC, KPMG To Audit NNPC, CBN, FIRS, Others

share on:

The Nigerian Government has appointed renowned accounting and auditing firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler (KPMG) to audit Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and other agencies.

Among others to be audited are Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).

Also are Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Revenue and Mobilisation Allocation Federation Commission (RMAFC) Federal Ministry of Finance, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, Nigerian Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (NEITI) among others

It would be recalled, President Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) had accused the Goodluck Jonathan led-administration of undermining previous audit of the agencies.

  1. Good move from pres Buhari, imo. PwC showed that it has what it takes to deliver a comprehensive (and more importantly, accurate) report on the oil sector. Now they will get to build on that and help increase transparency and accountability across multiple sectors, which we desperately need.
