I Won't Stop My Fight Against Corruption Because Of Senate Or DSS — EFCC Boss Magu

Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has vowed to continue the fight against corruption, stressing that neither the rejection of his nomination by the Senate nor the report by the Department of State Security (DSS) that he is ‘unfit’ to head the anti-graft agency can stop him.

Magu said this when he addressed a coalition of civil society groups at the entrance to the National Assembly.

“My priority is to fight corruption. My confirmation has not changed anything. We have always been on duty. I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation.

“The greatest violation against human right is crime against the society and the humanity but everybody has a duty and responsibility to fight corruption and I also have a responsibility. I assure you that we will fight to finish.

“We will never be deterred because what we are doing is trying to investigate what has gone before and protect the future of our children and our future generation. So, if we don’t work today and fight against corruption, the future is not guaranteed, the future of our children is not guaranteed.

“So, we must wake up, where ever you find yourself, fight corruption. Anytime you discover that I am corrupt, expose me.”
