Tinubu Appoints New ICPC Chairman


President Bola Tinubu has appointed the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Jigawa State, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, as the new Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

Also appointed as the Secretary for the commission is Clifford Okwudiri Oparaodu, the Presidency announced in a statement on Tuesday.


Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, said the President exercised the powers conferred on him as established in Section 3(6) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000.

The appointment, he stated, is “in furtherance of the Renewed Hope mandate to reform key institutions and invigorate Nigeria’s war on corruption.” He said it is subject to the approval of the Nigerian Senate.

“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 statement read.


“The position of Secretary to the Commission does not require Senate confirmation and, therefore, by the directive of the President, the appointment of Mr. Clifford Okwudiri Oparaodu as Secretary of the Commission takes immediate effect.”

The President urged the new ICPC management to always be above board as they discharge their duties without fear or favour concerning all matters before them.
