Mr Ekpo Nta is still the chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

The commission on Wednesday said it did not receive any letter mandating Nta to proceed on compulsory retirement leave.

The Spokesman of the Commission, Mr Edet Ufot, in a statement in Abuja said some national dailies on Oct. 26 published that Nta had been mandated to proceed on compulsory retirement leave.

He noted that the publications claimed that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) had written to the ICPC boss, mandating him to proceed on leave.
Ufot said: “The report purports that ICPC is in receipt of a letter from the SGF informing the Chairman to proceed on compulsory leave beginning from Oct. 26.

“It went further to impute perceived reasons for the alleged ‘sack’ of the chairman, quoting an anonymous ICPC source.

“However, no such letter or letters have been received in the Commission.”
Ufot added that ICPC had called the attention of relevant authorities to the publication for appropriate action.
