The Senate has on Wednesday, confirmed the appointment of Ibrahim Lamorde as the chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

It will be recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 appointed Lamorde to head the anti-graft commission. He has been under acting capacity since then.

However, Lamorde’s appointment followed the sacking of Mrs Farida Waziri as the chairman of the commission by President Jonathan over undisclosed reasons.
