Magu Is Going Nowhere, Osinbajo Declares

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday demanded that Ibrahim Magu would remain the acting executive of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC boss has been the bone of contention between the Senate and the presidency with the latter insisting on retaining Magu even though the Senate has called for his removal after twice failing his Senate screening.
Osinbajo, speaking in the Presidential Villa, Abuja said Magu has committed no offence to warrant his removal. He added that nor would the executive arm be strongarmed into making a decision.
He said, “Magu is going nowhere. Seriously, what offence has this man committed? I have known him personally right from the time of the very first chairman of the commission till now, he is a very dedicated, trustworthy gentleman. Don’t forget he is also the most senior official of the EFCC.”
This isn’t Osinbajo’s first declaration of help for Magu. The Senate, in challenge, has suspended the screening of different chosen people sent to it by the official till Magu is evacuated
