The presidency has once again written to the senate urging them to re-consider the appointment of Ibrahim Magu as the substantial EFCC chairman. The senate president, Olubukola Saraki read the letter on the floor of the senate, after they resumed from a closed-session that lasted about 80 minutes. In the letter, sent in through the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; Buhari said investigations revealed that Mr. Magu was not guilty of allegations laid against him by the department of state services (DSS), hence his re-nomination.

It would be recalled that on December 15, 2016, the senate‎ rejected the appointment of Magu as EFCC chairman, citing a security report from the department of state services (DSS). Magu was accused of living in a house paid for by a corrupt businessman. He was also accused of extorting money through a proxy‎ from suspects.

Following this, the president directed Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, to investigate the allegations. Malami submitted his report at the end of the assignment. As at the time of filing this report, the details of the investigation were not revealed in the president’s latest letter which was read on the floor of the senate this morning. It was also learnt that the president did not say why the rejection of Magu’s appointment should be reconsidered in view of the allegations.
