The President swore in Arase on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa’s council chamber in Abuja, two months after the Senate confirmed him as chairperson of the PSC.

Obi stated in a series of tweets via his Twitter handle that Arase will add value to his new position, adding that the former police chief follows a string of credible Commission leaders.

The former Governor of Anambra State expressed optimism that he will perform creditably in his new assignment.
