If Magu Is Rejected, Saraki Should Not Be Senate President – Senator Ndume

Former Senate Majority Leader, Ali Ndume, has declared that if the senate could refuse to confirm Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the EFCC based on allegations leveled against him, Bukola Saraki who even has a case in court should not be the senate president.

Speaking on Sunrise Daily, Senator Ndume faulted the action of the senate. His words:



“We have all been accused, I have been accused of sponsoring Boko Haram, the senate president is still going to court.

“Same as other members who have cases in court, yet they occupy seats in the senate. So, if you say because of the allegations he (Magu) should not be confirmed, then I should not be a sitting senator and Saraki should not be there as senate president.”

Ndume, who said he conducted personal investigation on Magu, absolved him of the allegations.

Commenting on the eloquence of Magu, Ndume said: “The bottom line is that we are trying to fight against corruption and if we ask: ‘is Magu doing his job?’, the answer is YES.”
