Human Rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has given a condition that must be met, before the removal of Ibrahim Magu, who is the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission can take effect.
Falana, while urging the Senate to shelve the plan to remove Magu, said the Senate can have its way when Senate President Bukola Saraki becomes the acting President.
The statement read in part, “In view of the foregoing, the implementation of the resolution of the Senate on the removal of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as the acting Chairman of the EFCC should be ignored by the Presidency on account of its apparent illegality.
“However, the distinguished senators who are desperate to institutionalise official corruption and impunity in the country by removing Mr. Magu from office may have to wait for the planned installation of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki as the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria!”
The senior advocate it was reported, maintained that the acting Chairman of the EFCC did not need the confirmation of the Senate.
