The Senate on Wednesday confirmed the appointment of Mr Joe Aniku Ohiani as the substantive Director-General of the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC).

The confirmation of Ohiani followed the presentation, consideration and adoption of a report of the Committee on Works, after the Chairman, Senator Adamu Alero (PDP-Kebbi) laid the report at the committee of the whole.

Alero in his presentation said the committee screened the nominee and found him suitable for appointment as substantive Director-General of ICRC.

He, therefore, asked the Senate to approve Ohiani’s nomination.

Also supporting the motion for the confirmation of the nomination, Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC-Kogi), described the nominee as a man of intellect and integrity who had worked in several capacities and came up unblemished.

Adeyemi further described the nominee as highly enterprising, while also commending President Muhammadu Buhari for the nomination of Ohiani.

The Senate, thereafter approved the nomination.
