“It is impossible, probably treasonable, that a security agency will be carrying out covert operations without the knowledge of the sitting president and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.”
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said that despite the rejection of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, by the Senate, the Presidency is fully behind him.
Justice Muhammad ruled that the applicants have no power under the provisions of the law to decide for the AGF who to prosecute.
The lawmakers said that President Buhari’s refusal to sack Magu as recommended by the Senate was a sign of disrespect for the third arm of government.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki has denied accusations of misappropriation of money from the Paris Club Refund, saying that the recent report was just another act of mere mudslinging by the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.
No thanks to the unholy machinations of an unscrupulous cabal in the presidency which formed a satanic partnership with a shamelessly crooked senate, Ibrahim Magu, nominee of President Muhammadu Buhari as substantive Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, was for the second time denied confirmation for that post by the senate on the strength of the same ill-motivated Department of State Service, DSS, security report that informed the first purported rejection.
Two days after his nomination as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was rejected by the Nigerian Senate, leading anti-corruption organization, Transparency International, has invited Ibrahim Magu as a guest speaker during its 2017 conference in London.
“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 acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has said that the report by the Department of State Services, DSS, which indicted him, cannot be proven and therefore not credible.
The Senate has again rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu by President Muhammadu Buhari as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, making it the second time.
