Will Baba rescue his pikin?

The rejected Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu may not totally be 'on his own' as the presidency intervenes.

The presidency said Senate’s rejection of Magu has to be officially communicated to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Senate had refused to confirm Magu, citing a report from the Department of States Service (DSS) as the reason.

The DSS, in a letter to the Senate said, “In the light of the foregoing, Magu has failed the integrity test.”

Femi Adesina, who is the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, tweeted on Thursday that President Buhari would duly respond to the rejection when the Senate sends him an official letter.
