President Muhammadu Buhari seems have ruled out a second term for the EFCC boss who was named the commission’s acting chairman by former President Goodluck Jonathan, after sacking Farida Waziri as the chairman.
His appointment was later confirmed by the Senate on February 15, 2012.

It was gathered that the decision to name another chairman for the commission at the expiration of Lamorde’s tenure was taken because of the lull in the EFCC’s activities over the years.
