Presidential Team Recommends Magu To Buhari For Confirmation As EFCC Chairman

The Presidency appears to be preparing to re-appoint and represent the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, to the Senate for confirmation as the substantive head of the anti-graft agency.

As a prelude to the nomination, the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, led by its chairman, Prof Itse Sagay, on Wednesday openly endorsed Magu as the best person to head the EFCC since its inception about 16 years ago.

Sagay, who was accompanied by other members of PACA, said Magu had instilled fear among those who used to loot Nigeria’s treasury with impunity and made many of them to flee the country and go into self-exile in order to escape prosecution.

Sagay, who led other members of the Presidential team to the EFCC Head office in Abuja, therefore, recommended Magu to President Buhari for nomination to the Senate for confirmation as the full head of the agency and urged the Senate to confirm him without hesitation given his sterling qualities and uncompromising stance against corruption.
