Governor Akeredolu’s Call For Magu’s Replacement Reactionary, CACOL Says

The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL) has dismissed an assertion by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State that there are over 1,001 Nigerians who can be chairman of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as “reactionary” and a bad precedent with possible catastrophic consequences.

Speaking on a radio program in Ibadan, Mr. Akeredolu called for the replacement of the acting Chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Magu, because of the refusal of the Senate to confirm his appointment.
Responding, Debo Adeniran, the Executive Chairman of CACOL, expressed surprise that the governor, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, chose to comment in the manner he did on a matter that is before the Supreme Court for adjudication.

“With all due respect to the SAN, we do not think that the consciously Senate-generated impasse over EFCC Chairmanship can grind the country to halt,” the CACOL boss said, adding that the governor was guilty of exaggerating the situation.”
