WATCH: Senate Rejects Nomination of Ibrahim Magu as EFCC Boss



senate-rejects-maguThe Senate has rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman.

The senate said that the its decision was based on “the security report before it”.

The Senate confirmed the nomination of the other 4 Members of the EFCC and referred them for further security screening.


President Buhari, had in July, sent a letter to the Upper Chamber for Magu’s confirmation as the anti-graft agency’s boss.

    Just because Magu is ready to prosecute those former governors who are now senators?
    Oh Nigeria.

    I disagree with you, it’s just because Magu has allowed Buhari and Apc to continually use him to watch – hunt mostly PDP members ignoring Apc members with all the petitions written against some of them including Rotimi Amechi etc. No wonder Orji Uzo kanu just decamped to the safe heaven party. Very good for him, he may be wiser if given such opportunity again in life.

      I strongly disagree with your comment. Magu spearheaded the investigation of the current Senate President who is NOT a PDP member. The DSS head, Daura, and Saraki are working to get Magu removed.
      We all know the Presidency is divided (DSS head, SSG and Chief of Staff on one side vs Magu and the NSA), and with the current funny “friendship” and meetings between Buhari and Saraki, I’m just hoping they didn’t strike a deal to follow due process – through the DSS presenting a questionable security report – to get Magu removed.
      Let’s just see how Buhari responds to this in the coming days then we can reach a conclusion.
