Following Senate’s non-confirmation of acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Commission, the Senate has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to send the name of another nominee for the position.
President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, said the Senate had played its constitutional role as an arm of government on the matter.
He said there is need to fill any vacuum that might be created in the commission following Magu’s rejection.
“With the screening being carried out in a transparent manner, we see democracy at work.
“I believe we have played our part; we have followed the Constitution and due process.
“We hope that the executive will quickly act and bring in another name as soon as possible so that the activities of the agency will not be crippled,’’ Saraki stated.
