Magu can be removed when Saraki becomes acting President – Falana | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has said the Senate should shelve all plans to remove the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

He, however, said the Senate can have its way when Senate President Bukola Saraki becomes the acting President.

Falana said this in a statement on Thursday.

The senior advocate maintained that the acting Chairman of the EFCC did not need the confirmation of the Senate.

The statement read in part, “In view of the foregoing, the implementation of the resolution of the Senate on the removal of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as the acting Chairman of the EFCC should be ignored by the Presidency on account of its apparent illegality.

“However, the distinguished senators who are desperate to institutionalise official corruption and impunity in the country by removing Mr. Magu from office may have to wait for the planned installation of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki as the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria!”

  1. Thank you SAN! Their game plan is already exposed but it won't work. The worst mistake of this administration is allowing Saraki assume the leadership of the Senate. He's devilish!

  4. when corruption has being institutionalized in a society or a country; when a nation continue to allow thieves and hoodlum to go to senate; they will do all to remove anything that will stand on their way. The senate is a place that we need heaven to purge; no wonder they are planning to put their main man there. That plan will never stand nor shall it come to pass.
