PDP Calls For Magu’s Immediate Prosecution Over Alleged Corruption

Presidential Panel Final Report: How Magu Re-looted Recovered Funds, Paid Falana N28m

The Federal Government has been called on by the Peoples Democratic, to immediately prosecute the suspended acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

The opposition party, on Thursday, noted that the delay by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to arraign the suspended EFCC boss is raising Nigerians attention over the integrity of the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

PDP made this call in a statement released through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

Ologbondiyan in the statement said, “The party said the delay is heightening suspicion in the public space over alleged attempt to give Magu a soft landing to cover up for certain top officials of the Buhari administration, as well as some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleged to have been indicted by the suspended EFCC chairman, in the course of the investigation by the Presidential Panel.”

“The expectation of Nigerians, therefore, is for the Federal Government to immediately arraign Magu before a court of competent Jurisdiction and prosecute him in line with the dictates of our laws.”

“Our party charges the Buhari Presidency to note that the world is watching the handling of the EFCC fraud case with keen interest.”

“The Federal Government should, therefore, take immediate steps to arraign Magu and all those indicted in the matter before a court of competent jurisdiction without any further delay.”
