Another Executive, Senate Face-off Looms

The Senate appears to be bracing for another face-off with the executive over the recent directive by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to the newly appointed heads of the National Pension Commission (PenCom), the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to assume duty without Senate confirmation.

A principal officer in the Senate, who spoke  under the condition of anonymity, said‎ the looming disagreement could determine the future relationship between the executive and the legislature.
He said members of the upper legislative chambers were seething with anger over the directive given by Osinbajo to the nominees to assume office in an acting capacity when they have not been cleared by the Senate.
