The EFCC investigation was presented to President Buhari in a reported delieverd on March 10th, 5 days before the senate rejected acting EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu. However in a swift reaction, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Saraki, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in a statement released yesterday, denied the cliams.
Olaniyonu stated that Magu is using the new allegations to fight against Sarakiand the senate for rejecting hisnomination on March 15th.
“It is obvious that at this point when Mr. Magu believes the Senate President should be blamed for his failure to secure confirmation as Chairman of EFCC by the Senate, he would want to fight back by cooking up reports and masterminding its leakage”.
