Suspended EFCC Chairman, Magu

In line with the suspended EFCC’s Chairman’s case, Ibrahim Magu can’t provide the agency’s audited accounts to the National Assembly as required by law, ThisDay reports.

Therefore, it is believed he took advantage of the non-confirmation of his appointment by the Senate to avoid accountability.

It states: “The Commission shall, not later than 30th September in each year, submit to the National Assembly, a report of its activities during the preceding year and shall include in such report the audited accounts of the Commission.”

Notwithstanding the Senate ‘s refusal to approve its appointment in December 2016 and again in March 2017, the EFCC was still required by law to present its annual reports in accordance with the established rule, as did the predecessors of Magu, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, Mrs. Farida Waziri, and Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde.
