Nwabudike Risks Losing LACC Chairmanship as Senate Plenary Questions his Citizenship


From all indications at the level of the Liberian Senate, the possibility of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission Chairman Cllr. Ndubusi Nwabudike maintaining his position is slim.

Upon a unanimous vote during Thursday’s session, the Liberian senate plenary requested a report on the confirmation of the current LACC Boss.

The Senate Plenary took the decision after a complaint was filed by Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon reminding his colleagues about the “illegitimacy” of Cllr. Nwabudike as head of Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) which he argues is constitutionally meant for born or naturalized citizens to occupy.

The Montserrado County Senator told the senate that info to inform plenary’s decision on the removal of the LACC Chairman is clear and should be done to maintain the imposed trust and confidence the Senate has.

Senator Dillon added that the Senate is aware of the “fraudulent” behaviour of the LACC Head and should be removed at the entity.

The report which is however anticipated on their next Thursday session will give room to the Upper House to make a decision believed to be asking President Geoge Weah or the Executive Branch of Government to remove Cllr. Ndubusi Nwabudike from the LACC as Chairman or any other public institution.

President Weah could also risk being cited to appear before the plenary to answer questions as to why Cllr. Nwabudike is still holding the chairmanship position after enormous concerns even from the legislature.

Nimba County Senator Prince Johnson who argued that the Senate has the power to cite President Weah if he refuses to adhere to the Senate said Cllr. Nwabudike has no space within the public sector “after dubbing the entire Public governance sector even at the University of Liberia”.

Additionally, Cllr. Nwabudike could risk persecution, revoke of his license to practice law, and a degree from any learning institutions if obtained in Liberia as was proffered by River Gee County Senator Commany Wesseh.
