Ali Ndume, former Senate Majority Leader, has expressed regret Ibrahim Magu was not confirmed substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, by the Senate. Ndume faulted the excuses given by the Senate for rejecting Magu’s nomination.
He said, “We have all been accused, I have been accused of sponsoring Boko Haram, the Senate president is still going to court,” Ndume said.
“Same as other members who have cases in court, yet they occupy seats in the senate. So, if you say because of the allegations, he (Magu) should not be confirmed, then I should not be a sitting senator and Saraki should not be there as Senate president.”
