Monrovia – Senator Abraham Darius Dillon (LP, Montserrado County) has called for the intervention of the Liberian Senate in getting Cllr. Ndubuisi Nwabudike out of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) over controversies surrounding his Liberian citizenship.

Senator Dillon, in a communication to the Senate’s Plenary, stated that Part IV Section 6.3 of the Act creating the LACC requires that only citizens of Liberia are eligible to serve as Commissioner of the anti-graft institution, and Cllr. Nwabudike, as Chairman does not meet the criteria.

“Mr. Pro-temp we hold strongly that Mr. Ndubuisi Nwabudike, a Citizen of Nigeria by birth has not demonstrated or proven to be a Liberian and manner of acquisition of Liberian Citizenship, as he claimed before this august body during his confirmation hearings,” Senator Dillon wrote in his letter.
