The Fearless Bukola Saraki Refuses To Keep Shut, Sacks Ibrahim Magu, As EFCC Chairman, Technically

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has said that the Economic and Financial  Crimes Commission, EFCC, has no substantive Chairman, because the Presidency refused to remove Ibrahim Magu, when his nomination was rejected by the Senate.

Saraki stated this on Monday afternoon, at an Orientation Programme organised by the National Assembly management, for the newly elected Federal Lawmakers

He maintained that the Presidency ought to have followed the standard global practice, by either presenting another nominee, or employ political solution by lobbying the Leadership of the Senate.

Saraki told the Lawmakers-elect that the Senate has the right to either confirm or reject Presidential nominees, in the interest of the nation.

Recall, that the Senate rejected Magu on the three occasions that the Presidency presented his nomination, citing an unfavourable memo against him by the Department of State Security Services, DSS.

Saraki noted that the negative public perception of the National Assembly members, adversely affected the 8th Senate.
