During this Senate session, Senator Amos Yohanna was sworn in to represent the Adamawa North senatorial district, replacing Senator Elisha Abbo, whose election was recently invalidated by the court.

President Tinubu more than a week ago appointed Dr. Aliyu, as the new Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

“The new Chairman of the ICPC is nominated for confirmation by the Nigerian Senate, following the President’s approval of the outgoing Chairman’s request to proceed on pre-end of tenure leave beginning on November 4, 2023, ahead of the expiration of his tenure on February 3, 2024,” the Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale disclosed in a statement.

According to Ajuri, the appointment was “in furtherance of the Renewed Hope mandate to reform key institutions and invigorate Nigeria’s war on corruption.”
