Ibrahim Magu reacts to his rejection by the senate, says he will fight corruption until his last day in office
EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, says despite his rejection by the senate today, he will continue in his fight against corruption till his last day in office. Speaking with a coalition of civil society groups at the entrance to the National Assembly immediately after his rejection by the senators, Magu said.
"Those allegations can not stand the test of time because they can not be proven. You know, you can’t just raise mere allegations without giving the person opportunity to answer you. There is issue of fundamental human right and the right of fair hearing is there. Up till this time, DSS has not called me and I am even surprised that the same report is coming back and this time around it is signed by somebody. I doubt the genuineness of that report. But I think we need to identify those who have the interest of this country at heart.”
