Failure to confirm Magu as EFCC chair only confirms Senate as chamber of corruption – CACOL

The failure of the Senate to confirm Mr. Ibrahim Magu as the substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC against popular call for his confirmation has been described by the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, as shameless and disgraceful.
The reason for the refusal was said to have been predicated on some sort of ‘security report’ according to media. But the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Mr. Debo Adeniran, in his reaction to the development condemned the Senate for their failure to confirm Magu, he said, “although we knew it was going be like making a camel pass through the eye of the needle for the acting Chairman to be made substantive, but at least we gave a benefit of doubt because we felt that, even among thieves, there should be honour. We are totally disappointed that the few men of honour, that is if there is any left in that hallowed chamber to have ensured that the ‘voice of reason’ prevailed.”
