EFCC Reveals Presidency’s Plan to Remove Magu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has revealed that there’s a cabal by the Presidency to remove its Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Acting Head, Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Mr Tony Orilade, said the media reports on fresh moves to remove the Acting Chairman of the commission by the Presidency was unfounded.

in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday, Orilade said Magu will not want to be distracted by unfounded media reports.

“He is focused on the fight against corruption and majority of Nigerians who are beneficiaries of the corruption fight are happy with him.

“With securing 312 convictions, including two ex-governors last year and five convictions already in 2019, the EFCC under Magu’s leadership deserves applause,” Orilade said.

NAN recalls that a report in the media stated that the EFCC chairman may be asked to pursue further studies in order to advance his career in the Nigeria Police Force where he is already a commissioner. The Senate had twice refused to confirm Magu as substantive chairman of the commission.
