ABUJA—Auditor-General for the Federation, AGF, Mr. Samuel Ukura, has denied media reports that he was using the report of the 2010 annual audit, recently submitted to the National Assembly, to harass some agencies of government.
Ukura, in a statement, yesterday, noted that though “it is true that I had recently complied with Section 85(2) of the 1999 Constitution, with the submission of the 2010 annual audit report of the federation to the National Assembly, the job of the AGF ends after the submission of the report.
“It will be out of place for the AGF to comment or grant media interviews on the report, which had not been considered by the appropriate committees of the National Assembly.
“Allusions to the purported interview with AGF or crediting him with quotes and statements as had been done in some of the reports purported to be excerpts from the 2010 Annual Audit report, are not only unprofessional but also ill-conceived.”
He denied that he spoke to journalists and media houses about the audit report.
