The Federal Executive Council FEC has approved a bill seeking the repeal of the Code of Conduct Bureau CCB and Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT Act.
Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, briefed State House correspondents after a hybrid meeting of the Federal Executive Council FEC at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Malami said that the bill sought to enhance what the two agencies had been doing arising from the identified gaps for the purpose of improving their functions.
The minister said that the bill sought to expand the scope of CCT, taking into consideration the workload.
He said there were a lot pending cases, but CCT had limited personnel to address them.
Malami said that the second item that was presented to the council was a report on the Conference of State Parties to the UN Convention against corruption held in Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt, from December 12th to 17th, 2021.
