ICPC Accuses Federal Lawmakers Of Compromising Oversight Functions

Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) has accused members of the National Assembly of compromising their oversight functions.

The ICPC Chairman, Professor Bolaji Owosanoye, says the lawmakers are commercializing the oversight functions and investigations.

Owosanoye, speaking at an induction course for the newly elected members into the National Assembly, says that in the past, members of the National Assembly utilized their powers of investigations well.

He, however, says that of recent, the lawmakers, among other accusations, are alleged to be passing on the cost of the oversight to the ministries, departments and agencies.

The anti-corruption agency boss also notes that the legislators are being accused of accepting all forms of gratifications, including foreign trips and phoney seminars to compromise on their oversight functions.
