Alhaji Ibrahim Magu: War over confirmation of Magu as substantive EFCC boss intensifies in his defence

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Campaign for Democracy, CD, has appealed to the National Assembly to confirm Alhaji Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

CD said his confirmation should be based on the startling successes and commitments he had so far recorded in tracking down corrupt politicians and the recovery of billions of naira stolen by corrupt Nigerians and their foreign collaborators.

Speaking to newsmen in Onitsha, Anambra state, the National Publicity Secretary of CD, Dede Uzor A. Uzor said Magu's introduction of whistle blowing into the system was another master stroke in the fight against corruption as such a policy had led to the recovery of over N150 billion stashed away to different hidden mansions, both property and fiscal cash.

CD therefore appealed to NASS and other sister agencies to work in harmony with EFCC in order to stem the tide of corrupt practices in the country.

According to him, "All these monies and goods stashed away by corrupt politicians, political appointees and top civil servants are instrumental to the current economic recession in the country and it is assumed that once all these monies stashed away are recovered, Nigeria's economy will bounce back to sound footing".

"These recovered monies should be channeled towards free education from primary to university levels, youth empowerment and creation of jobs for our teeming unemployed youths in the country. The recovered wealth should equally be channeled towards revamping the power and health sectors", Uzor stated.
