THE Nigerian Senate has confirmed the appointment of Ola Olukoyede as chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Senate also confirmed Muhammad Hammajoda as the Commission’s secretary.
The appointments of Olukoyede, a former secretary of the Commission, and Hammajoda were confirmed after President
Tinubu wrote the Senate on Tuesday to request that they be confirmed as soon as possible.
Olukoyede promised to fight corruption in Nigeria without fear or favour and in accordance with the law.
He also said he would prioritize crime prevention over law enforcement.
