Why Magu is Under Scrutiny – FG -TimeTestedNews


The Presidency says the ongoing interrogation of the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, is to clear him of the weighty allegations leveled against him.

A Presidency source, who preferred not to be named, revealed this to State House correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday.


He said the probe of the anti-graft boss was an affirmation that nobody under “the present administration is above scrutiny”.

The source, who could neither confirm nor deny the suspension of Magu as reported by traditional and social media outfits, maintained that the investigation of the EFCC boss was to reinforce the Buhari Administration’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

He affirmed that the holder of an elevated office such as the chairman of the EFCC must be above suspicion.

According to the source, the Buhari Administration would not prejudge anyone because it can be counted on to uphold justice and fairness.

The source said: “The panel investigating allegations against the Acting EFCC Chairman had been sitting for some weeks now.”
