Two ‘controversial’ ICPC board members appointed by Osinbajo to resign

Maimuna Aliyu and Sa’ad Alanamu, the two board members of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other offences Commission (ICPC) who are undergoing investigation for alleged corruption, will resign their appointments any moment from now.



A presidential source disclosed this to TheCable on Saturday.


“The two ICPC commissioners reported to be under investigation will be stepping down and won’t be members of the commission anymore,” the source said.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, earlier in the week approved a new chairman and board members of the commission.

Reports emerged on the media on Friday, that two of the board members are currently being investigated by the ICPC.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, had told reporters in Abuja that the allegation would be thoroughly investigated.

He said, “These claims would be promptly investigated. The Presidency will surely do only what is right, proper and seen to be so.”
