As Presidential Panel quizzes EFCC Boss, Ibrahim Magu,PDP says Magu should step aside from the Commission for proper investigation untill he proves himself innocent
The Party in a statement signed by its spokesman,Kola Ologbondiyan said that the President Buhari led administration should show the genuineness of its war against corruption by allowing unhindered investigation of the EFCC Chairman as Nigerians are already aware of the development.
The Party said that the development around the EFCC Acting Chairman as well as the desperate attempt by the Commission to cover or wave off his investigation, only raise more integrity questions regarding Magu’s activities in the Commission.
The Party recalled that last Month, the Attorney general and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami released a memo in which he indicted Magu of alleged diversion of funds and fraudulent sale of assets seized by the EFCC.
” Our Party, Nigerians and indeed the International Community are keenly monitoring the development and expect the Buhari government to muster the courage to carry out comprehensive investigation and make its findings available to the public.”
The Party said that with the allegations and investigation,Magu has lost the moral rectitude to continue to preside over the anti-corruption agency adding that he should step aside until he proves himself innocent.
