For the second time in two months, Nigeria’s upper chamber legislator, the Senate has reject the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as EFCC chairman.
Nigeria’s president Buhari sent the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as chairman of Economic Financial Crimes Commission, but the senates rejected to confirms his nomination due to the fact that he’s unfit to lead the commission because he had failed an integrity test contacted by the DSS.
As the situation unfold now, former senate majority leader, Ali Ndume says if the senate could refuse to confirm Ibrahim Magu, as chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) based on allegations leveled against him, Bukola Saraki who has a case in court should not be the senate president.
But speaking on Sunrise Daily, a breakfast programme on Channels Television, Ndume faulted the action of the senate.
“We have all been accused, I have been accused of sponsoring Boko Haram, the senate president is still going to court,” Ndume said.
“Same as other members who have cases in court, yet they occupy seats in the senate. So, if you say because of the allegations he (Magu) should not be confirmed, then I should not be a sitting senator and Saraki should not be there as senate president.”
