President Buhari Insists on Magu as EFCC Boss


President Buhari has reportedly insisted his choice of Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the EFCC.

According to a recent report, the President had written to the Senate, asking the lawmakers to confirm Magu as the anti-graft chairman.

It was further reported that Buhari’s letter was in response to the Senate reply on the rejection of Magu as EFCC chairman.

Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, was rejected by the Senate over an alleged report by DSS.

The Senate had claimed a damning security report by the Department of State Services was the reason for the rejection of Magu’s nomination.

Meanwhile, there are allegations that the comments of ex-Senate leader, Ali Ndume on the decision of the Senate on Magu’s confirmation had led to the loss of his position.
