The Nigerian Senate has once again rejected the recommendation
of the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim
Magu, as the right man for the full-time job.

Ibrahim Magu. During Senate screening on March 15

The decision to reject Ag. EFCC boss followed a report from
the Department of State Services, DSS which again disqualified Magu based on an
integrity test by the secret police, which he failed.
The Magu looked to be doing well during his screening for
the position at the Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, March 15 before Senator Dino
Melaye disclosed that the upper house of legislature had received a letter
saying Magu is not qualified for the job because he failed an integrity test by
the secret police.
Melaye claimed that two reports were released by the DSS
yesterday on Ibrahim Magu and they all accused Magu.
Melaye therefore read Paragraph 14 of the DSS letter on Magu
which said: In the light of the
foregoing, Magu has failed the integrity test and will eventually constitute a
liability to the anti-corruption stand of the current government.
In a response to Melaye, the Ag. EFCC boss kicked against the
DSS report, saying that the service had shown it had a problem with
inconsistency when it released two contradictory reports about him to the Senate
late last year.
What do you say about
credibility of that agency?
Magu queried.

He said, what the senate received was a letter on October 3,
2016.

The Senate, he said, entreated the DSS to re-confirm its
integrity report on Magu. This was what was received on Wednesday, March 15,
2017, and to which Melaye referred during questioning of Magu.
