Why Buhari should intervene in Code of Conduct Bureau crises

  • There is ongoing trouble with some key principals over some management issues at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB)
  • This follows failure of the federal commissioners and board chairman, Prof. Mohammed Isah, to agree on some issues
  • Several allegations were levelled against the board chairman and he has come out to deny everything

The Federal Commissioners of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and Board Chairman, Prof. Mohammed Isah, are divided over management issues.

The commissioners had written a petition, dated August 29, 2022, to President Muhammadu Buhari, through the Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

They are Dr. Emmanuel Attah, Prof. Samuel Ogundare, Ehiozuwa Agbonayinma, Dr. Olayinka Balogun (a retired CP), and Barr. Ben Umeano.

The officials accused Isah of corruption, high-handedness, and transfer of staff without reference to the board, in contravention of extant provisions.

But some insiders said the allegations were not the true position of things, adding that there may be some untold scores that are yet to be settled.

They also contend that the portrayal of the chairman as a sole administrator was unfair and an outright misrepresentation.

It was gathered that one of the issues the commissioners raised was the engagement of a Special Adviser (to Isah) from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The source said the official was seconded by the CBN Governor, the same way staff of the Department of State Services (DSS), Accountant General of the Federation’s office, among others, were sent.

On the N60million allegedly diverted by Isah, another source said the case of money in question happened in 2017 before he assumed office.

The controversy, which was about the remittance of cooperative society money, then led to a crisis among the leadership.
