EFCC Explodes Over Saraki’s Claim That Magu Begged Him by deafeyez: 7:34am On Jul 01, 2019
The Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, EFCC, has reacted to comments
by former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki,
against the commission.
EFCC spokesman, Tony Orillade, in a statement
Sunday night, said Saraki claimed that acting
chairman, Ibrahim Magu, begged him to help his
confirmation by the Senate.
The commission noted that Saraki said this in
his submission to the Chief Judge of Federal
High Court on why he should ignore the request
of the EFCC, seeking the transfer of its cases
from Justice Taiwo Taiwo who recently granted
ex-parte order to restrain the Commission from
performing its statutory duties.
“Incidentally, the EFCC has filed a detailed
response against the judge’s restraining order
and took up issues over the controversial
interim order”, it said.
“While waiting for the careful response of the CJ
over the Commission’s request, we wish to
advise ex- Senate President to carry his cross
and allow the judiciary to performs its
constitutional role.
“It is preposterous for the ex-Senate President
to be raising issues on what transpired during
the confirmation of EFCC boss in 2016 when he
is no longer in charge of the Senate in 2019.
“It is too late for him in the day, to be claiming
innocence over the confirmation saga when
every Nigerian knew what transpired under his
watch. The Commission under Magu, has
moved on and will not be distracted over
mundane issue.
“Let it be stated in unequivocal terms that the
investigation of Saraki’s stewardship, whether
as a former Senate President or as a former
governor of Kwara State, has absolutely nothing
to do with the non-confirmation of Mr. Ibrahim
Magu as the substantive Chairman of the EFCC.
“While the EFCC will not allow itself to be drawn
by Saraki to take up issues with him on the
pages of newspapers, it is pertinent to once
again state in clear terms that the probes being
carried out by the EFCC are nothing personal,
but all about enthroning probity in governance,
and letting leaders know that even out of office,
they will be held accountable for their
stewardship.
“Again, it is worth reminding Saraki that he has
no need to be scared of the EFCC and its
leadership as long as he believes he has a clear
conscience. He should, therefore, rather than
running from pillar to post, allow the law to
take its course.”

Has he not be functioning without Saraki confirmation?,



What is the big deal in confirmation.



Also,what does that has to do with the lawsuit.Is he saying he shouldn't be probed Because of that or that is his own reason for embezzle money.

Technically, he is trying to say Magu is corrupt too.
