Group Hails Tinubu Over Chira’s Appointment as AGF

The Shitile Integrity Group on Tuesday expressed appreciation to President Bola Tinubu for approving the appointment of Mr. Shaakaa Kanyitor Chira as the Auditor-General of the Federation.

This was contained in a statement signed by group President, Ben Ukeji, and made available to journalists in Jalingo.

The statement read: “President Tinubu by this appointment has once more displayed his desire for fairness and placement of merit above mediocrity in selecting those who will help him in effectively steering the affairs of this country.

“The President will always succeed because he always searches for the most qualified, to get results, when it comes to appointment, a thing he started even when he was governor of Lagos State.

“Chira’s appointment is, therefore, a product of his hard work, experience and competence. We were told that the president approved Chira’s appointment after the Federal Civil Service Commission conducted a screening exercise that identified him as the most qualified candidate who had also scored the highest marks in the examination conducted, among all qualified candidates for the office.

“Therefore, we are very confident to say Nigerians will not regret because the president has made the best choice in picking Chira as the Auditor General of the Federation.

“We, as members of the Shitile Integrity Group, shall support and solidly stand behind the new appointee (Chira) to enable him to succeed.

“It is said, to whom much is given, much is expected. The Shitile Integrity Group is therefore urging the new Auditor General of the Federation to justify the confidence which the president has in him, by serving to the best of his abilities”, Ukeji said.
