President Buhari will respond to the rejection by the Senate of his nomination of Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, after he had received official communication from the Senate.
This was revealed by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, via a post on the social media.
“The Presidency will respond to the non-clearance of Magu as EFCC boss, after it receives official communication in writing from the Senate,” Adesina tweeted.
The Senate had on Wednesday rejected Magu’s nomination for the second time after his name was resent to them for confirmation.
Their decision was based on a report from the Department of State Services, DSS, which claimed that “Magu has failed the integrity test and will constitute a liability to the anti-corruption drive of Mr President.”
