The Senate on Thursday rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“The nomination of Ibrahim Magu is hereby rejected and has been returned to the President for further action.”

The Senate had slated today, Thursday, to screen Mr. Magu, who has been the acting EFCC Boss for the past one year.
