Presidency Would Not Communicate Position On Magu To Senate


The Presidency on Tuesday said it will not communicate its latest position on the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, to the Senate.

A source in the Presidency disclosed this to The PUNCH in Abuja.

The source said “The Vice-President has made the government’s position on Magu’s matter clear.

“There is no need for the President to write the Senate again on the matter since he is no longer seeking the lawmakers’ confirmation.

“Have you not seen Magu carrying out his assignments without hindrance? That is to show you that the President does not need to write the senators again.”

The Senate had, on March 15, 2017, requested the President to nominate a replacement for Magu following the rejection of his nomination by the legislature.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly said the rejection, which was based on a security report by the Department of State Services, had ended Magu’s chairmanship of the EFCC in an acting capacity.
