Governors Threaten Showdown With Magu
Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu is a man who is in one controversy or the other.
The Senate does not like him and the Governors are now showing they also have issues with him.
Few days ago, his issue generated another round of egoistic exchanges between the presidency and members of the Senate.
As the dust of the matter is yet to settle, the Nigerian governors are preparing their own showdown with the EFCC boss.
The governors have concluded plans to report him to the Federal Government.
They said they would embark on what they described as “a showdown” with Magu over the anti-graft agency’s probe into the recently-released Paris Club loan refunds to the states.
The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, who is also the Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, briefed reporters of the governors' decision in Abuja on Thursday.
He said the leadership of the EFCC was not planning to win the numerous corruption cases in courts, but would prefer to engage in media trials.
Yari, who has been accused by the EFCC of diverting part of the refund, stated that the governors were tired of being intimidated and harassed by the anti-graft agency on how they spent the money.
