Buhari Writes Senate Seeking Confirmation Of Magu As EFCC Chairman



President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate, seeking the screening and confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC after some good and encouraging work.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, read the letter, at the Senate plenary on Thursday.

The letter was signed by Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo in his capacity as acting President when President Muhammadu Buhari was in the United Kingdom on a 10-day medical vacation.

Mr. Buhari appointed Mr. Magu acting chair of the EFCC after the removal of Ibrahim Lamorde on November 9, 2015.

Mr. Magu, if confirmed by the Senate, will be the the fourth head of the Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, after Nuhu Ribadu, Farida Waziri and Mr. Lamorde.
