A statement by the commission’s Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, said the commission`s Chairman, Mr Musiliu Smith enjoined members of the committees to be selfless and passionate in taking decisions.

The committees are expected to process, advice and guide the commission in taking decisions during its meetings.

“The committees are expected to receive and consider processed Memoranda requiring Board decision(s) from the relevant operational Department(s) of the Commission.

“The purpose for this is to ensure that all cases/matters brought before the Commission at Plenary pass through the relevant Standing Committees for in-depth analysis and consideration.’’

Smith is also the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Finance and General Purposes.

The Permanent Secretary and Secretary to the Commission, Mr Musa Istifanus also used the occasion to brief the chairmen and members of the Committees on the functions of the Committees.
