The Senate today being 11th January 2017 in a plenary session confirmed the nomination of Anthony Ayine as the new Auditor-General of the Federation. 
President Buhari last year nominated Ayine to assume office as the new Auditor-General of the Federation.
Though senator Binta Garba that is representing Yobe North, kicked against it, arguing that Ayine was formerly an auditor of a local government in Cross Rivers state and was on level 14 which is not level 17 needed for a public service Auditor to be considered for the position of an auditor.Senator Binta said that Ayine was related to Winifred Oyo-Ita, the Head of Service of the Federation, and that this negated the practice of Federal Character. 

After all was said and done, Ayine was afterwards confirmed.
