President Tinubu Appoints New ICPC Chairman, Secretary

…Approves 90-Day Pre-End Of Tenure Leave For Outgoing Chairman

In the exercise of powers conferred on the President as established in Section 3(6) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000, and in furtherance of the Renewed Hope mandate to reform key institutions and invigorate Nigeria’s war on corruption, 

President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of a new chairman for the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), pending Senate confirmation.

He also approved the appointment of the Secretary to the Commission.

Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu — Chairman / Chief Executive Officer, ICPC 

Mr. Clifford Okwudiri Oparaodu — Secretary to the Commission, ICPC 

According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale , 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 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. 

Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu has embarked upon many far-reaching reforms as the Attorney General of Jigawa State since September 2019 and holds Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate degrees in Law. 

He was also named as a Senior Advocate of Nigeria-designate in October 2023. Mr. Clifford Okwudiri Oparaodu is a lawyer with over 30 years of experience and has served meritoriously in the public service as a Member of the Rivers State Judicial Service Commission and Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of Port Harcourt City Local Government Council. 

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