The Senate has rejected Ibrahim Magu’s nomination as Chairman of the EFCC.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, who addressed journalists after a closed-door session on Thursday, said the rejection was based on “security report.”
He said the rejection would be communicated to President Muhammadu Buhari to take further action.
The Senate’s spokesperson, Aliyu Abdullahi, revealed this Thursday afternoon after the Senators had spent over one hour behind closed doors discussing the matter of Mr. Magu’s confirmation.
“The Senate wish to inform the public that based on available security report, the Senate cannot proceed with confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“The nomination of Ibrahim Magu is hereby rejected and has been returned to the President for further action,”
Mr. Abdullahi said. The Senate had slated today, Thursday, to screen Mr. Magu, now acting EFCC Chairman. Details later. . .
