The Nigerian Senate may reconsider the confirmation of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
The Senate said it will reconsider Magu if President Muhammadu Buhari provides the necessary explanation for it to do so. Addressing newsmen on Friday, Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Sabi Abdullahi, said, “This is not an issue that is ambiguous and I will not take issue with anybody. What we have said is very straightforward and unambiguous. It is not our responsibility or in our power to tell Mr. President what to do.
“It is his prerogative and for every action taken, there must be a basis. Let him take any action but, of course, he will base his action on explanations. If that happens, we will take his explanations based on their face value and see. Until then, our decision is very simple. It is unambiguous; that is what we said from the beginning and that is what we stand by.”
