Ahmed Idris, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF), in Abuja on Monday urged the Association of Bursars of Nigerian Universities (ABNU) to put in place a think tank that would generate ideas to enhance effective management of Nigeria’s treasury.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of ABNU’s two-day annual conference, Idris expressed his readiness to accept the recommendations from the think tank of Nigerian University bursars
The AGF, who was represented by Gabriel Madaki, the Director of Special Duties, said his office was ready to work with the ABNU, particularly in the area of ideas generation.
He said: “At the end of the conference, this body should be able to put together a think tank as the treasury is willing to accept recommendations of scientific models for improved management of the national treasury to bring about national development, and we’ll be ready and willing to partner with the body in that regard.”
Idris added: “Permit me also to congratulate my dear brother, Professor Suleiman Bogoro, who has done so well in service delivery and academic development in Nigeria at large.
“I join all other Nigerians to say well done to him because we’re truly impressed with what he’s doing.
“This award is a landmark development in the life of Alhaji Idris and indeed the treasury family. It’s an incentive to do our best.
“We want to assure this association that we’re truly encouraged and we will continue to do our best and deliver our best.”
