Court consolidates 12 suits on Magu

The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday ordered the consolidation of 12 suits filed last year in respect of the Senate’s controversial refusal to confirm Ibrahim Magu as the substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Presidency’s insistence that he should remain in office in an acting capacity.

Eight of the cases are said to be praying for Magu’s removal from office following his rejection by the Senate, while the four others are said to be praying for the court’s order validating his continued stay in office.

Justice Binta Nyako made the order of consolidation in a ruling on an application moved on Monday by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Mr Dayo Apata.

Apata represents President Muhammadu Buhari and the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, both joined as separate parties in most of the suits.
