President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed George Abang Ekpungu as the Secretary of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for a tenure of five years.

Mr. Ekpungu served as Commissioner for New Cities Development in Governor Ben Ayade’s first term in office.

He declined reappointment to serve in Governor Ayade’s cabinet after he lost out at the People’s Democratic Party primaries for the Ikom/Boki federal constituency seat.

He proceeded to continue his law practice where he consulted for the EFCC severally, until his appointment was announced this evening

Also appointed as Board Members of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission are Luqman Muhammad (South South), Anumba Adaeze (South East), Alhaji Kola Raheem Adesina (North Central) and Alhaji Yahya Muhammad (North East).

These appointments are “in line with Section 2 (1) and Section 4 of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Act, 2004,” the presidency said.

The President also directed the forwarding of the names to the Senate for confirmation.
