BUHARI CONSIDERS NEXT MOVE OVER MAGU’S REJECTION

Nigeria’s Presidency has hinted on President Buhari’s next move on the rejection of Ibrahim Magu, a candidate he nominated for confirmation as chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Nigerian report has it that Magu was yesterday rejected by the Senate after appearing a second time.

Speaking on President Buhari’s next move, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, Itse Sagay has said that the President will continue to do his part by nominating Magu.

“They have done their own part of the job – very good. They don’t appoint, they merely confirm. So, the ‘appointor’ will continue to appoint,” he added.

Sagay said the senators feel threatened by Magu’s commitment to the job, hence their second rejection of his nomination.

Sagay also noted that President Muhammadu Buhari would continue to appoint Magu to lead the EFCC, even if the Senate refused to confirm him.

“They have done their own part of the job – very good. They don’t appoint, they merely confirm. So, the ‘appointor’ will continue to appoint,” he added.
