Ibrahim Magu

The Senate in a plenary session on Thursday rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Speaking after a closed door meeting of the Senators, the spokesperson for the upper legislative chamber, Aliyu Abdullahi, made the disclosure, citing security reasons for their reason to reject President Buhari’s nomination of Mr. Magu.

“The Senate wishes to inform the public that based on available security report, the Senate cannot proceed with the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as 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, who has been acting as EFCC Chairman in the past one year.

The Presidency had since July requested the Senate to confirm Mr. Magu.

The request was made through a letter signed by Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo in his capacity as acting president when Mr. Buhari traveled abroad for medical treatment.
