The Senate has officially confirmed Ola Olukoyede as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Additionally, the upper legislative chamber confirmed the appointment of Muhammad Hammajoda as the Secretary of this anti-graft agency.

The confirmation process came after the two nominees were subjected to screening by the Senate, a week after their appointment by President Bola Tinubu. These appointments are for an initial renewable term of four years.

Ola Olukoyede’s elevation to the position of EFCC Chairman comes approximately four months after the suspension of the previous chairman, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa. This transition represents a pivotal moment in the ongoing efforts to combat corruption in Nigeria.
