FLASH: EFCC Chairman-designate, Mr Magu awaits confirmation session at the NASS

Information reaching Omojuwa.Com from inside the National Assembly revealed that the Senate is locked in a closed door session since the last hour whilst Mr. Magu, Chairman-designate of EFCC waits patiently in a holding room for his confirmation that is slated to hold today.


Recall that the Nigerian Senate rescheduled Mr Magu’s confirmation to December the 15th.


The Presidency had in July written the Senate seeking the screening and confirmation of Mr. Magu as substantive chairman of the commission.


President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed Mr. Magu as acting chairman of the EFCC after the removal of Ibrahim Lamorde on November 9, 2015.


Before his appointment, Mr. Magu was the Head of Economic Governance Unit of the commission.


If confirmed, Mr. Magu will be the fourth head of the anti-graft agency, after Nuhu Ribadu, Farida Waziri and Ibrahim Lamorde.
