Vice President Yemi Osinbajo Insists EFCC Boss Magu Is Not To Be Replaced

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is “going nowhere”.

The senate has demanded the replacement of the anti-graft czar who failed its screening on two separate occasions but the presidency has allowed Magu to carry on with his job.

But speaking when he hosted select media organisations, at the presidential villa in Abuja, on Thursday, Osinbajo said Magu has not committed any offence.
“Magu is going nowhere. Seriously, what offence has this man committed?” he asked. 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.” Osibanjo said the executive would not be stampeded over the matter of the EFCC chairman.

This is not the first time that the vice-president would defend Magu publicly. Last year, he told reporters that Magu could carry on as head of the anti-graft agency without being confirmed by the senate.

From the Cable


  1. How trustworthy is he, mr. osibanjo. Anyway my pvc is ready for you guys

    1. As if yours really count in the sphere of things.Rather than jumping into conclusion why not answer the question as regards what the man did.Corrupt senators are afraid cos magu as a senior official knows how this things play out.Stop making comment as if you have all the answers.VP Osibanjo is not stupid defending him...weve got to learn how to trust our leaders at times,though i know our trust has been bastardised before but we can't give up on hope.VP has info you may not be privy to,so trust him on this.

  2. Waka pass. All man to his own pocket and cover.

  3. Some days back, I watched this man being interviewed on Channels TV. The way he kept trying to intimidate Chamberlain Usoh was a huge turn off. He came across as arrogant and proud.
