Louis Mandama from Adamawa State will represent the North-east zone, and Olugbenga Adeyanju, a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police from Ekiti State will represent the South-west zone.
The Nigerian Senate revealed in a series of tweets from a verified Twitter account that the “Proceeds of Crimes (Recovery and Management) Bill, 2022 (SB. 553 & SB. 645)” had been read for the third time and PASSED.
During the proceedings, Senate President Ahmad Lawan was quoted as saying, “This is one of our major contributions to this administration’s anti-corruption efforts, and it is a huge boost to our country by minimising the embezzlement of public funds by public servants.”
On Wednesday, the seven newly reappointed ICPC board members were inaugurated prior to the start of the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by President Buhari.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Secretary to Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha, and National Security Adviser Major General Babagana Monguno are among those attending the FEC meeting.
