Senate begins screening to confirm EFCC chair


The Senate has begun confirmation proceedings for Ola Olukoyede, the nominee for the position of Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as he is currently present at the National Assembly.

The confirmation screening process is presently ongoing at the Senate in Abuja.

His appointment by President Bola Tinubu followed the suspension of the former head of the anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, nearly four months ago.

Tinubu recently authorised Olukoyede’s appointment as the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, and the nomination is subject to Senate confirmation.
