It’s disappointing Senate can’t confirm Magu’ | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO), Lagos State Chapter has called on the Senate to rescind its decision on Mr Ibrahim Magu, acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission.

The organisation said that Magu had not been charged and found guilty as charged in any reputable court of law.

Mr AbdulWaheed Odunuga, State Coordinator of BYO said in Lagos on Saturday that it was unimaginable that the Senate found it difficult to confirm Magu’s appointment.

”It is disappointing to see the Nigeria Senate finding it difficult to confirm the appointment of Magu, who has been acting in the same capacity for the past 13 months.

”It is not right that the Senate is only acting on a clandestine security report that has yet to be filed for necessary litigation.

”We are calling on the Senate to rescind its decision until Magu is found guilty as charged in the reputable court of law.

”Otherwise, they should act in line with the same motion that kept the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki as the leader of the Senate, despite being tried in the  Code of Conduct Tribunal, ” he said.

Odunuga said that the agency under the leadership of the nominated chairman had been adding value to the 2017 Budget through the recovery of funds.

According to him, this act alone should have earned him a national recognition rather than rejection fueled by tutelage.

He said that the youth organisation would not fold its arms and let fears for good governance and corruption cripple the country any further.

“We are also using this medium to call the attention of National Assembly to the proposed bill for Special Court for Corruption for prompt passage.

“The court will aid quick recovery of more disputable looted funds to resuscitate the nation’s economy, ” he said.

  1. Cock and bull story. The Nigerian Senate will not confirm him, do your worst. He himself is corrupt and partisan in the witch hunt they call fight against corruption. How many APC members have been arrested and tried? Rubbish

  2. When will the Nigerian youth begin to use their God given brain. when will they stop mixing politics with reality. Have they read the report from the DSS that was released? Magu is a confirmed thief. I am one person that will not castigate somebody before they are convicted by a law court. In the case of Magu, he has been convicted, jailed and smuggled back into the system by the criminal power brokers in our country. Magu's place should be in Kirikiri Maximum Prison.

    1. God bless you sir/ma. The problem with the youths of today is inability to read hence they take whatever nonsense that is thrown at them without any research; little wonder they are yet to take up any meaningful leadership role. Come to think about it, PMB has ordered investigation on this issue hence it will be wise for them to maintain decorum and stop castigating the senate.
