BRIEF ON THE OFFICE
This Office was created through Decree No. 15 of 1989 as amended by Decree No.25 of 1990. Prior to its creation in 1989, the Auditor-General for State had been responsible for auditing the accounts of the Local Governments in the State. During this period, a Department of Local Government Accounts in the State Audit handled the auditing of accounts of Local Governments and rendered financial advice to the Local Governments. However, due to the magnitude of funds made available to the Local Governments from the Federation Accounts, the task of auditing the two tiers of Government became too enormous for the State Auditor-General. As a result, the Federal Government by the Provision of Decree No. 15 of 1989 as amended by Decree No.25 of 1990 (Basic Constitution and Transition Provision Amendment Act.) created the Office of the Auditor-General for Local Governments to take over duties and responsibilities of auditing of Local Government Accounts and rendering financial advice.
