The Nigerian Senate has again rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The Senate had earlier refused to clear Magu for the job, citing a DSS report indicting the EFCC boss of corrupt practices.

The Senator representing Kogi west Dino Melaye, had cited a fresh security report from the Department of State Services (DSS) disqualifying him based on his failure of an integrity test.

Mr. Melaye said two reports from the DSS were released yesterday on Ibrahim Magu and they both indicted him.

When asked by Senator Isah Misau, why the EFCC has failed to investigate Godwin Emeifele, the Central Bank Governor, who released money to former President Goodluck Jonathan’s National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, Magu said the EFCC has invited all who needs to be invited.

Asked about the amount that has been recovered so far by the anti-graft agency, Magu said it would be very difficult for him to say.

Explaining the reason behind the decision, the Senate said that security report available to it showed that Mr Magu is not fit to be chairman of the body.

In this regard, the lawmakers sent back his nomination letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing journalists at the National Assembly, Senate Spokesman, Aliyu Abdullahi said that based on security reports, the Senate cannot proceed to confirm the acting EFCC Chairman.

“Based on security reports available to the Senate, the Senate cannot proceed to confirm Mr Magu, consequently, the Senate rejects the nomination and returns the nomination to President Buhari,” he said.

Shortly after the Senate spokesman briefed journalists, the acting EFCC Chairman was seen hurriedly leaving the National Assembly complex.

With the Senate throwing back the nomination of the Mr Magu back to President Buhari, it is not clear at this point what the President’s action would be.
