Ndume: Senate Has No Business Investigating Magu, His Rejection Was Premeditated

Ndume: Senate Has No Business Investigating Magu, His Rejection Was Premeditated Ndume
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume, has criticized the Senate for investigating acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

Magu was rejected for the second time in three months by the lawmakers last week

The Guardian reports that Ndume feels the rejection was premeditated, especially after the Senate wrote to the Department of State Security (DSS), for an advisory on Magu a day before his screening.

“As a Senate, our job is limited only to confirmation of nominees. We are not supposed to investigate anybody. We are not supposed to be a court. The tradition is that if there is a nominee before us, Senators from that state will take a position and that is the first hurdle,” he said.

He also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to re-present Magu for confirmation again.

Ndume said the president, having earlier cleared Magu based on a report by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, should go ahead to stand by his conviction that the Acting Chairman of EFCC committed no infraction contrary to the allegations leveled against him by the DSS.
