The Nigerian Senate is reaffirming its position that it is not going back on its demand for the sack of Ibrahim Magu as the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Briefing journalists after Thursday’s plenary session, Senate Spokesman, Senator Aliyu Sabi noted that a court has given judgment affirming that the senate not only has the power to confirm, but can also reject any nominee from the president.
This is coming as the lawmakers continue to insist that they would not consider any executive nominee, in line with their July the 4th, 2017 resolution to suspend all executive confirmation requests until Magu is removed.
He said the senate is convinced that the executive would do the needful in the overall interest of the country, by removing and replacing Magu as the anti-corruption czar.
