The Senate on Thursday, refused to confirm the nomination of Mr Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The Upper legislative chamber said security reports about the person of Mr Magu was not favorable for his clearance for the anti-graft agency’s top job and asked President Muhammadu Buhari who nominated him to send the name of someone else.
However, the Senate approved the nomination of four other members of the board of the commission, whose names were sent along side Magu’s.
The position of the Senate was read to newsmen in a prepared by its spokesman, Aliyu Sabi, after a closed-door session, which lasted about three hours.
Even as it gave its nod to the nomination of the four other members of the EFCC job, the Red Chamber did not state when it would screen them.
