Senate rejects Magu as EFCC Boss again

The senate today has again rejected Ibrahim Magu as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission boss.

At the senate’s plenary today (Wednesday, March 15), majority of the senators rejected the confirmation of Magu as the EFCC boss through popular vote after over an hour of gruelling screening at the National Assembly in Abuja.

Recall that in December last year, the senate rejected the confirmation of Mr Ibrahim Magu as the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. The senate said security reports about the person of Mr Magu was not favourable for his clearance for the anti-graft agency’s top job and asked President Muhammadu Buhari who nominated him to immediately replace him.
