President Tinubu has written the Nigerian Senate, seeking the screening and confirmation of Ola Olukoyede as chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
If confirmed, Olukoyede will serve for a term of four years.
Gatekeeper recalls that Tinubu had appointed Olukoyede as substantive chairman of EFCC.
Olukoyede’s appointment followed the resignation of the suspended executive chairman of the commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
Tinubu’s request for his confirmation is contained in a letter read during Tuesday’s plenary by the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio.
President Tinubu also asked the Senate to confirm Mohammed Hassan as secretary of the anti-graft agency.
