The Senate has screened and confirmed the appointment of Musa Aliyu as the substantive chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had written to the Senate on Wednesday seeking confirmation of Aliyu as chairman of the agency.
Subsequently, on Thursday, the lawmakers screened Aliyu during the plenary.
The screening exercise started around 11:50 a.m. today after the leader, Bamidele Opeyemi, raised a point of 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.
