“Likewise, any further or postponed activity according to the expulsion of Magu as acting Chairman of the EFCC will loan authenticity to his situation as acting administrator around five years and on.

“This is a procedural anomaly in common assistance not mulled over by our laws or open help culture,” Olajengbesi expressed.

He exhorted the President to guarantee that the EFCC was shielded at all expense from decay and unsavoriness, considering its significance to the economy as the foundation office in the nation’s battle against defilement.

The COPA convener noticed that there were equipped individuals in the nation that would direct the issues of the office without dread or favor, and who might carry a new air to its authority.

He included: “The Ibrahim Magu-drove EFCC is an extravagance that can never again be endured as it is a damage to the nation’s enemy of debasement war, and supports ‘strongman governmental issues’ as against strong institutional frameworks.”

Tribunepoint WEEKLY reviews that Magu was on Monday examined by a presidential board researching claims of bad behavior against him.

The cross examination occurred at the State House, and he was joined by one of the EFCC legal advisors, Mr Rotimi Jacobs.
