The Senate has confirmed Musa Aliyu as the substantive chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission.
His confirmation followed a screening exercise on Thursday during plenary.
The screening began after the leader, Bamidele Opeyemi, raised a point order to suspend relevant senate rules to allow strangers into the chamber.
Aliyu, a lawyer and Attorney-General of Jigawa State was screened at the Committee of a Whole chaired by the Deputy President, Jibirin Barau.
President Bola Tinubu had written to the Senate on Wednesday seeking confirmation of Aliyu as chairman of the agency.
