There are strong indications that the lawmakers of the National Assembly are launching a fresh plot for the removal of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu.
It was gathered that despite the reconciliatory dinner held at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari, last week, the legislators are still seeking for Magu’s dismissal.
There are also strong reports from grapevines that the lawmakers might use the removal of Magu as a condition for the consideration of all outstanding appointments in the Senate.
The development has created anxiety in Buhari’s camp because of the stalling of the confirmation of the appointment of over 45 nominees in the Senate.
Speaking with The Nation, a credible source quoted a Senator from the South-West as re-echoing the need for the removal of Magu at the rapprochement dinner.
The source, who pleaded not to be mentioned on print, further said that the suggestion by the Senator was seconded by a principal officer of the House of Representatives who was hitherto an ardent supporter of Magu.
But Buhari, who listened calmly, allegedly glossed over the request for Magu’s replacement.
