Olukoyede not qualified to lead EFCC – Report

Published




President Bola Tinubu has appointed Olanipekun Olukoyede as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, even though Olukoyede does not meet the legal qualifications for the position, according to a report on Premium Times.

According to Premium Times,  Mr Olukoyede, although a former secretary of the EFCC and ex-chief of staff to the chairman of the commission, did not meet the requirements of section 2(3) of the EFCC Act to be qualified for the appointment.

The section stipulated that a chairman of the anti-graft agency “must be a serving or retired member of any government security or law enforcement agency not below the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police or equivalent; possess not less than 15 years experience.

The EFCC Act requires that the chairman be a serving or retired member of any government security or law enforcement agency with at least 15 years of experience. 

Olukoyede has only seven years of experience in the EFCC and has never worked in any other security or law enforcement agency.
