Controversial ICPC ex-chairman takes over Salaries and Wages Commission

Ekpo Nta, the former Chairman, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, has taken over the leadership of the National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission.

The Chief Press Secretary of the Commission, Emma Njoku, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

According to Njoku, the Chairman of the Commission, Chief Richard Egbule, handed over to Nta, who is also the Commissioner for Compensation at the NSIWC, after the completion of his statutory 10 years tenure.

Egbule, while handing over to Nta, described his tenure as historic, being the first to complete two terms and the first Chairman as the pioneer staff of the Commission from inception in 1992.
He called on staff of the Commission to get acquainted with the Act establishing the Commission.

This, according to him, will enable them know the enormous contributions and importance of the Commission to the development of the Civil Service and overall welfare of Public Service.
Nta, in his response, commended Egbule for his achievements in streamlining the nation’s salary administration.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Egbule started his working career as an Administrative Officer on grade level 08 in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation and rose to the post of Chief Management Consultant in the same office in 1992.

He became a pioneer staff of the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission in 1992 and worked to structure and builds the Commission with the best professional practice.

In 2006, he was appointed the Secretary to the Commission and on August 17, 2009, former President Umaru Yar’Adua made him the Executive Chairman of the Commission.

He attained 10 years as the Executive Chairman on August 17.
Nta left ICPC on a controversial note.

He was in July 2017 sent on compulsory leave by the then Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
The Vice President, who was acting for President Muhammadu Buhari who was on leave outside the country, was to later redeploy him to the NSIWC via a memo from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

A press statement to that effect was issued by the Director of Press in the SGF’s Office, Bolaji Adebiyi.
