In his audit report for the year 2021, Paul Oghene Aghanenu, auditor general of Delta State, made some strong indictments, querying several financial transactions of some ministries and agencies of government. He also raised issues of suspected tax evasion and non-recovery of outstanding loans from beneficiaries, even as far back as between 2009 and 2013. Aghanenu, whose nomination by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as substantive auditor general was confirmed by the state House of Assembly July 16, 2019 after acting for some months in that position, also listed several agencies of government which accounts had not been audited for several years.
