Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, yesterday queried the process that led to the rejection of Mr Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, by the Nigerian Senate.
According to SERAP, the process cannot in anyway pass validity test as well as not conforming with principle of fair hearing.
In a statement by its executive director, Adetokunbo Mumuni the organization said the rejection of Magu as Chairman of the EFCC on the “pretext of conflicting and inconsistent reports on him by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, is a slap in the face of Nigerians who are victims of grand corruption.”
According to the organization, “The entire process for the submission of Magu’s name for confirmation by the Senate, and the purported confirmation hearing by the Senate is utterly unsatisfactory.”
