Musa Aliyu Confirmed as Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission

by Ikem Emmanuel

The Nigerian Senate has officially confirmed Musa Aliyu as the substantive chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). This significant development followed a thorough screening process during a plenary session on Thursday.

The screening commenced around 11:50 am, initiated by the Senate’s leader, Bamidele Opeyemi, who requested the suspension of relevant Senate rules to permit the presence of individuals not typically in the chamber for this exceptional occasion.

Musa Aliyu, a legal practitioner who has previously served as the Attorney-General of Jigawa State, underwent the rigorous screening process at the Committee of the Whole. The session was presided over by Deputy President Jibirin Barau.

This confirmation follows President Bola Tinubu’s official request to the Senate, submitted on Wednesday, seeking the endorsement of Musa Aliyu as the chairman of the ICPC. This appointment holds significant importance as the ICPC plays a crucial role in combating corruption and related offenses in Nigeria. Aliyu’s confirmation underscores the government’s commitment to addressing corruption and promoting transparency and accountability in the nation.
