Senator Sam Anyanwu: Magu Is Not The EFCC Acting Chairman

By Abdul Tukur

Corrupt, anti-graft chairman, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu’s dream is to be confirmed as the fourth substantive chairman, but a lawmaker has put an end to that dream, insisting that the Economics and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC boss is not seen in that light.

In March, the nomination of Mr Magu was rejected due to an Intel report by the Department of State Service. Even though Mr Magu’s confirmation was rejected, he still remains in office, because the Presidency is yet to send a replacement name.

Compounding matters is the poor performance Mr Magu gave during his screening, and groaning from EFCC staffers.

There has been several petition against Mr Magu, who is described as a “liability to the anti-graft fight,” by the state police.

Some of the petitions, written by EFCC staff, were published on DENISAURUS News.

“There are petitions against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission by some Nigerians, but my Committee does not see Ibrahim Magu as the Acting Chairman and that is why he was not invited,” Senator Anyanwu said.
