Senate Celebrates As Court Affirms Power To Reject EFCC Boss Magu

The Senate has said it has been vindicated on the rejection of the appointment of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Aliyu Sabi-Abdullahi, who briefed journalists in Abuja on Thursday, announced that a Federal High Court had ruled that the upper chamber of the National Assembly had the powers to confirm or reject his appointment.

The Senate’s spokesperson said, “We are pleased with this judgment and we want to salute Nigeria’s judiciary for always rising up to the occasion to protect our democracy and deepen our democratic processes. The Senate had rejected Magu’s appointment bases on a report by the Department of State Services which disqualified him.

The lawmakers had also placed an embargo on confirmation of appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari which required legislative approval, to protest against Presidency’s position that some appointments did not require Senate’s approval. Sabi-Abdullahi stated that the embargo would remain until Magu is replaced.

From punch


  1. Nice one there.. Magu is too corrupt,dont know why government keep forcing looters on us.

    Mc pinky

  2. How is it that a country of intellectuals ended up having a stark illiterate as president?
    Buhari should respect the role of the Senate and remove that corrupt Magu. Being EFCC chairman is a privilege and not a right. The Senate has refused to give him that privilege and they owe him no explanation. Buhari should understand this.
    No one is indispensable.

  3. Thought this matter was settled?

    Faith is Our Compass in this country

  4. Nice move from the Legislators, the executive can't consistently show high headedness in this Magu issue.

    Faith is our compass in this country

  5. Everything and everyone seems to be working against Buhari and it’s just so sad.How can these selfish,conniving and thieving senators jubilate because someone that is trying to help the govt fight corruption is being removed,how pathetic can they be?
