Following his unequivocal rejection by members of the Senate, Acting EFCC Chairman has taken his anti-corruption message to Transparency International.
Ibrahim Magu Goes to Transparency International
Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu
Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, will next week be the toast of two leading anti-corruption organisations in London.
The invitation by Transparency International and Global Witness, came several days after his confirmation was rejected by the Nigerian senate, working in cahoot with the Department of State Services.
Magu will be a guest speaker at an international conference on money laundering and assets recovery on 21 March in London.
He is expected to speak on the topic, “Give Us Our Money Back – Nigeria’s Fight Against Corruption: A Critical Conversation”.
“The invitation from the Global Witness and Transparency International is in recognition of the invaluable role the Magu-led EFCC has played in his more than one year in office in recovery of stolen funds”, said Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesman of the agency.
”It also coincidentally comes a few days after members of the Nigerian Senate chose to overlook the strides achieved by Magu, and instead refuse his re-nomination by President Muhammadu Buhari as the substantive chairman of the EFCC”, Uwujaren added.
The international conference, which is coming on the heels of the 2016 London Anti-Corruption Summit, will focus on the progress of Nigeria’s asset recovery and anti-corruption efforts.
It will also feature a panel discussions for “critical exchange of views” between officials and non-government experts from Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
A few international personalities have been invited along with Magu to participate in the conference.
Among those from Nigeria are Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information; Prof. Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC; its secretary, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye and Olanrewaju Suraju of the Human and Environmental Development Agenda.
