Share This


President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Oluwatoyin Sakirat Madein as the substantive accountant-general of the federation.


Mohammed Ahmed, director of communications, office of the head of civil service, announced Madein’s appointment, in a statement on Friday.


The appointment took effect on May 18, 2023.


Prior to her appointment, Madien was the director of finance and accounts in the office of the head of the civil service of the federation.


Maiden has garnered experience in the federal civil service while working as an accountant, financial manager, and internal auditor in the last 30 years.

She replaced Sylva Okolieaboh, who was appointed as the acting accountant-general of the federation after the removal of Chukwuyere Anamekwe.


Anamekwe was appointed in the acting capacity after Ahmed Idris was suspended over allegations of N80 billion fraud linked to him.


Idris was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on May 16 — the anti-graft agency said he had refused to honour invitations to answer questions on the fraud allegations.


The accountant-general general was subsequently suspended by Zainab Ahmed, the finance minister, days after his arrest.



Madein was born on 7th March, 1965 in Iperu-Remo, Ikenne LGA, Ogun state.


In her LinkedIn profile, she stated that she was conferred with a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in management finance by Walden University, United States.


She obtained a higher national diploma in accountancy from the Ogun State Polytechnic, now known as Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta.


She also obtained a master’s degree in business administration from the Ogun State University, now known as Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye.


She had served at different ministries like police, power, works and housing, youth and sports development.
