Shehu Sani, lawmaker representing Kaduna central, says Ibrahim Magu, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is doing well.
In a statement on Friday, Sani made known his position regarding the decision of the senate to reject the nomination of Magu as EFCC boss.
The senator noted that he’s impressed with the performance of Magu, but he’s bound by duty to respect the consensus of the senate majority.
He also said the EFCC could do better in the areas of “rule of law and fundamental human rights”.
“My personal opinion on this is simple; Magu is doing a good job as the boss of the EFCC.
“All that is needed is the rule of law and fundamental human rights elements which need to be strongly observed by the commission, rule of law remains the most potent weapon in the fight against corruption.
“I remained respectfully bound by the majority position of the Senate on the issue, but wish to categorically and unambiguously state that I’m personally impressed with his performance,” Sani wrote on his Facebook page.
Itse Sagay, chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, was recently quoted to have said Magu’s appointment as EFCC boss will be “renewed” whether he is confirmed or not.
