Senate Confirms Aliyu As ICPC Chairman

The Senate has confirmed Musa Aliyu as the substantive chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission.

His confirmation followed a screening exercise on Thursday at the plenary.

The screening started around 11:50 am after the leader, Bamidele Opeyemi, raised a point order to suspend relevant senate rules to allow strangers into the chamber.

Aliyu, a lawyer and Attorney-General of Jigawa State was screened at the Committee of a Whole chaired by the Deputy President, Jibirin Barau.

President Bola Tinubu had written to the Senate on Wednesday seeking confirmation of Aliyu as chairman of the agency.
