President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the appointment of Mr. Ola Olukoyede as the Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The President also approved the appointment of Muhammad Hammajoda as Secretary of the EFCC on a renewable term of five years.
Olukayode takes over from Mr. Abdulkarim Chukkol who has served as the Acting Chairman of the EFCC. Before his appointment, he has previously served as Chief of Staff to the former Acting Executive Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu and Secretary to the Commission.
Olukayode is a seasoned lawyer with over twenty-two (22) years’ experience. He is a regulatory compliance consultant and specialist in fraud management and corporate intelligence with extensive experience in the operations of the EFCC.
Hammajoda is the current Director of Finance and Accounts of the EFCC before his appointment as Secretary of the Commission. He is also a public administrator with extensive experience in public finance management. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Maiduguri and a Masters in Business Administration from the same university. He began his career as a lecturer at the Federal Polytechnic, Mubi. He further went into banking before becoming a public servant.
The two appointees parade impressive credentials sterling enough for their new roles as anti-corruption czars.
