“Magu Rejection Stands”Senate

The Nigerian Senate has insisted on the rejection of Mr.Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), spokesman for the Red Chamber of the National Assembly, Mr. Sabi Abdullahi,said yesterday.

Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media,spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in reaction to Thursday’s statement by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo that Magu ‘’will remain the EFCC chairman as long as I remain the Acting President and as well as Muhammadu Buhari remains the President.’’


“You know before we made that resolution the issue was debated. It is not because the executive has said something, we will react to it. We discuss issues first. “That is what makes up an institution. Nobody in the Senate is expressing his individual opinion. We are expressing the opinion of the Senate, its stand and its position. “We have given it a resolution. For now that is what subsists, and until we get a response, otherwise officially, we are not going back.” He asked all arms of government to respect the rule of law for the deepening of the democracy in the country.

“Let us work in the interest of Nigerians. We have made a point, a point which is clear,’’ he said. “He was brought to us for confirmation, and on the basis of damning reports from the DSS, we rejected him twice. It is left for Nigerians to see and we have done our part,” he said.
