Anti-corruption group, HEDA and its international partners are convinced Former Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu is unlikely to get justice at the Presidential Panel set up to probe him.
In a letter addressed to President Mohammadu Buhari, the Human Environmental Development Agenda, (HEDA Resource Centre), Global witness, Cornerhouse and Re: Common said the panel has spent more days than necessary without establishing any serious case against the former EFCC boss.
Raising the same concern for the third time in 6months, HEDA and it’s partners are urging Buhari to disband the panel and save Nigeria from what it describes as an local and international embarrassment, If the panel cannot establish a proven case of corruption against Magu.
In the letter jointly signed by the groups’ Helmsmen, they expressed profound concern over the conduct of the judicial inquiry into allegations made by the Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, that Mr. Magu had abused his office when he was Acting Chair of the EFCC.
The group said it has no problem with the investigations but rather that the investigation has, from the start, been so deeply flawed and biased that impartial observers have long since given up hope of Mr Magu receiving a fair hearing.
