EFCC Boss: Buhari Ignores Senate Threat, Sticks To Magu

President Muhammadu Buhari will not communicate to the Senate his latest position on the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.

The Senate had, on March 15, 2017, requested the President to nominate a replacement for Magu following the rejection of his nomination by the legislature.

But VP Yemi Osinbajo had ruled out the possibility of replacing Magu, saying the President did not find the security report prepared by the DSS, which formed the basis for Magu’s rejection, a strong reason to replace Magu who's doing a good job.

When asked when the latest government’s position would be sent to the Senate, a source in the Presidency told Punch that Buhari did not need to communicate his latest position to the Senate.

He said, “The Vice-President has made the government’s position on Magu’s matter clear. There is no need for the President to write the Senate again on the matter since he is no longer seeking the lawmakers’ confirmation.

“Have you not seen Magu carrying out his assignments without hindrance? That is to show you that the President does not need to write the senators again.”

Osinbajo had said he aligned himself with the argument of a lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), that Senate confirmation was not needed for the EFCC’s chairman appointment.
