Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has declared that told those who want Ibrahim Magu removed as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) should perish the thought, asserting that the anti-corruption czar is “going nowhere.”
It was recalls that the Senate had demanded the replacement of Magu who failed its screening on two separate occasions, but the Presidency has allowed Magu to carry on with his job in acting capacity.
To protest the refusal to sack Magu, the Senate chose to suspend the screening of nominees sent by President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, in an interaction with journalists at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Osinbajo maintained that the EFCC acting chairman has not committed any offence to warrant his removal.
“Magu is going nowhere,” he declared.
“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.”
