Magu’s Confirmation: 8th Nass Members Had Skeleton In Their Cupboards – Alaafin Oyo

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, has said that the refusal of the immediate past members of the National Assembly, NASS, to confirm the appointment of Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was due to the ‘skeleton in their cupboards’.

Alaafin said this in his palace on Thursday when the Ibadan Zonal Head of the Commission, Friday Ebelo, led a delegation to pay him a courtesy visit.

“The eighth National Assembly tried, they did everything possible not to get Ibrahim Magu appointed.

Why? It is because they have skeletons in their cupboard,” he alleged. While commending the efforts of the EFCC, Alaafin noted that the recent stories of recovered stolen funds in local and foreign currencies attested to the efficacy of the Commission under the leadership of its current acting Chairman.

He added that the Commission deserved the cooperation of all well-meaning Nigerians who desire greater days ahead for the country. “We must encourage you. We must support you and cooperate with you, otherwise, corruption will kill Nigeria.

“The fear of EFCC is leading some looters to several parts of the world. But, you are after them. You are getting them. There is no hiding place for them.

“Through you, I want to commend Ibrahim Magu for a job well done,” he said. He described the institution of Alaafin as one that is dedicated to service to the people, adding that once an Alaafin is installed, he hardly has a private life.
