President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a letter to the National Assembly seeking the screening and confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)‘s boss.

The letter, according to the Senate’s Twitter handle was read on the senate floor on Thursday.

The letter was signed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who was the acting president at the time Buhari was in London for a 10-day vacation.

Magu was appointed as the acting chairman of the commission after Buhari sacked Ibrahim Lamorde on November 9th 2015.

      I think he should be rejected. Magu is a disgrace to that office. He is clearly biased in the discharge of his duties. His hands are soiled and he is obviously an errand boy to powers that be in the APC. All his accusations have always been on the pages of the news media first before they even start investigations. Someone always manage to leaks the news to Sahara reporters. He is too desperate to be seen to be working. Meanwhile, he is very busy doing nothing. With him, you are guilty first before anything else. Confiscating properties before cases even go to trial. The legislative arm of govt’ should this once bare it’s fangs and reject Magu.

    Please throw the Mangu away! Hausa president, AGF, Police,COAS, EFCC? Please tell Buhari other Nigerians can do it!

    EFCC under Mangu has been lopsided and political!

    They have been a tool in the hand of Buhari and APC forever reading his body language!

    Hausageria via Buhari

    And the idiots that voted for him are STILL making excuses; while its 2x more expensive to pay your child’s school fees in the UK or USA, while people are losing jobs, while rich Hausa people are getting richer by getting appointed for no given reason. While Southerners get murdered for worshipping a different God everyday, in fact, while everything is wrong
