C4: Madinah not qualified to be auditor-general

C4: Madinah not qualified to be auditor-general

Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism says Madinah Mohamad has zero auditing experience.

PETALING JAYA: The Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) has questioned the decision to appoint Madinah Mohamad as auditor-general, highlighting her lack of auditing experience.

C4 said the role of auditor-general must be filled by someone with the specific knowledge and capability, skills and practical experience in key areas related to auditing, accounting and financial management.

Given this, the NGO said it was “baffled” by the choice of Madinah, who “clearly does not meet the above criteria and requirements”.

“Madinah may have the qualifications suitable for other posts, but most glaringly she has no auditing experience.

“What were the process and consideration taken by Prime Minister Najib Razak in recommending her appointment? We ask for an explanation in this regard,” C4 executive director Cynthia Gabriel said in a statement today.

Madinah, who was secretary-general of the education ministry until she went on mandatory retirement from September last year, will take over from Ambrin Buang whose tenure as auditor-general expires today.

Chief Secretary to the Government Ali Hamsa said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V had consented to Madinah’s appointment upon the advice of the prime minister and following consultation with the Conference of Rulers in accordance with Clause (1) Article 105 of the Federal Constitution.

Madinah, 60, holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Political Science from Universiti Sains Malaysia as well as a Master of Science in human resource development and a doctorate in human resource management from Universiti Putra Malaysia.

In May 2013, she was transferred to the education ministry from the science, technology and innovation ministry, where she was also the secretary-general. She has been with the civil service for the past 35 years.

Gabriel said Madinah’s appointment “greatly worried” C4, and called for the Auditor-General’s Office to be independent and report directly to Parliament to ensure its independence and credibility.
