The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, says his non-confirmation by the Senate won’t stop the fight against corruption. Magu said this on Wednesday at the main entrance of the National Assembly in Abuja while addressing some civil society organizations (CSOs) that gathered to receive him after leaving the confirmation screening in the upper chamber. In his words, Magu said, “My priority is to fight corruption. My confirmation has not changed anything. I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation.
“The greatest violation against human right is crime against the society and the humanity. But everybody has a duty and responsibility to fight corruption. I also have a responsibility. I assure you that we will fight to finish.” On the allegations levelled against him by the Department of State Service(DSS), Magu said, “Those allegations cannot stand the test of time because these allegations cannot be proven. You can’t just raise mere allegations without giving the person opportunity to answer you. There is issue of fundamental human right. Right of fair hearing is there. Up till this time, the DSS has not called me and I am even surprised that the same report is coming back and this time around, it is signed by somebody which I doubt the genuineness of that report.”
