President Muhammadu Buhari has nominated Anthony Mkpe Ayine, from Wula in Boki LGA of Cross River state to the Nigerian Senate to be confirmed as the Auditor General of the Federation.

In a letter sent to the Senate, and read by Senate President Bukola Saraki on Tuesday, Buhari said: “In line with this constitutional requirement, the Federal Civil Service Commission has recommended Mr. Anthony Mkpe Ayine for appointment as the Auditor-General for the Federation. The Curriculum Vitae of Mr. A. M. Ayine is herewith attached.

“I have accepted this recommendation and hereby present the nomination of Mr. Anthony Mkpe Ayine for confirmation by the Senate.
