President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has responded to the Senate on its rejection of the nomination of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, IBRAHIM MAGU.
In a letter sent to the Office of the President of the Senate on Sunday night, BUHARI pleaded with the lawmakers to confirm MAGU.
It was gathered that the President’s stance stemmed from the fact that the Acting EFCC Chairman had been cleared of allegations against him in the security report by the Department of State Services.
BUHARI’s letter was in response to the communication from the Senate on the rejection of MAGU’s nomination for the EFCC chairmanship.
It was further learnt that the President also addressed the issue of the Senate’s allegation of misconduct against the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, BABACHIR LAWAL.
