The Senate on Thursday rejected the confirmation of acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, several months after forwarding his name to the Senate.
The Senate said it rejected the request for the confirmation of Mr. Magu based on “available security report”.
“The Senate wishes to inform the public that based on available security report, the Senate cannot proceed with confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“The nomination of Ibrahim Magu is hereby rejected and has been returned to the President for further action,” the Senate said.
By this decision, Mr. Magu has ceased to be the acting EFCC chairman.
