‘Magu not the only Nigerian worthy to be EFCC chairman’ – CNPP

Unread postby Wsj » Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:58 am

The Secretary General of the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP), Chief Willy Ezugwu, has reacted to the ratification of Senate’s rejection of Ibrahim Magu’s nomination as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) by the judiciary.

DAILY POST recalls that a private citizen, Mr. Oluwatosin Ojaomo, had sought a declaratory order of the court to determine if the Senate had powers to confirm Mr. Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the EFCC.

In his reaction to the court’s decision, Ezugwu said that the leadership of anti-graft agency did not begin and end with Magu, stressing that there were other good Nigerians who could pilot the affairs of EFCC better.

He told New Telegraph: “The court verdict is a confirmation that the Senate was acting within its constitutional powers, when it rejected Magu’s nomination as EFCC chairman. I can only agree with the court’s decision on the matter.

“I don’t think that Magu is the only good Nigerian to hold that position. There are other good people who can do the job even better, who are serving or retired officers in all the federal law enforcement agencies. The EFCC Establishment Act did not state that only police officers can occupy the position as EFCC chairman. Why is it that only police officers are nominated for the position?

“The Senate’s decision on Magu should be respected by the executive now that the judiciary has ruled in their favour.”
