Daily Trust - - NEWS - By John Chuks Azu

A nom­i­nee in the board of the In­de­pen­dent Cor­rupt Prac­tices Com­mis­sion (ICPC), Dr Sa’ad Alanamu, dropped by Act­ing Pres­i­dent Yemi Os­in­bajo has de­nied ever be­ing in­dicted in cor­rup­tion re­lated case.

Alanamu, a former chair­man, Kwara State Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion, was re­port­edly dropped by Os­in­bajo over al­le­ga­tions of be­ing un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the ICPC.

In a press state­ment on his be­half by PRNige­ria yes­ter­day, Alanamu said he was never in­dicted for any cor­rupt prac­tice at any time, when he served in var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions in Kwara State nor for bribery as chair­man of the Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion.

“I would rather pro­tect my in­tegrity than take any of­fer that would rub­bish the high­est stan­dard I have main­tained in my pub­lic ser­vice ca­reer. I was never in­dicted nor con­victed of any of­fence or crime by any in­sti­tu­tion. The records of my stew­ard­ship are there in var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions I served.

“Even though I am not a politi­cian, I was chair­man of var­i­ous coun­cils and in­sti­tu­tions at dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods,” he added.
