Buhari’s Nominee Who ‘Started’ School Before Birth Confirmed by Senate
The Nigerian Senate has affirmed the designation of Alhaji Yahaya Muhammad (Yobe) as a member of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
This is regardless of protests that his curriculum vitae shows that he began school before he was conceived.
Likewise, George Abang Ekungu (Cross River) was affirmed as the secretary of the EFCC.
Others incorporate Luqman Muhammed (Edo); Anumba Adaeze (Enugu), and Alhaji Kola Raheem Adesina (Kwara).
The affirmation of the ominees followed the thought and reception of a report of the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes on the five candidates.
Prior, introducing the report, the administrator of the council, Senator Suleiman Abdu Kwari (APC, Kaduna North) asked the Senate to affirm the candidates.
Kwari, who said the chosen people were screened with no adverse security report on them, added that they were totally equipped for the work.
In the interim, there had been a complaint by Senator Hassan Hadejia (APC, Jigawa) that the CV of the Yobe candidate demonstrated that he began school before he was conceived, however the delegate Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, who managed the whole, disregarded Hadejia's objection while the Senate continued to affirm his assignment through voice votes.
SaharaReporters had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari on September 21 appointed the new members into the board of the nation's anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The President appointed George Abang as secretary of the board, while Lukman Mohammed, Kola Adeshina and Mohammed Yahaya were appointed as board members.
