The federal government has removed Hajia Maimuna Aliyu and Sa’ad Alanamu from the board of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other offences Commission (ICPC).
Laolu Akande, spokesman of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, disclosed this on Sunday.
He said: “We are stepping down two of the new ICPC board nominees who have ongoing investigation issues with the commission as this presents a conflict.
“While existence of allegations or petitions against someone shouldn’t necessarily disqualify them from considerations for appointments.
“This case presents a peculiarity as we have confirmed that the agency in which they are to serve is indeed investigating the two of them.
“A basic check showed no court convictions against them. But when weighty petitions come up, this administration will always do the right thing”
