Former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Obong Victor Attah has weighed in on the renewed altercation between the senate and acting president Yemi Osinbajo on the former’s insistence on having the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, eased out.
Attah in an interview yesterday, in Abuja said the senate is now a “diminished” lawmaking organ, advising the president to continue to re-nominate Mr Magu, describing him as the best man for the job.
The fact that even the governors now want to come and join these senators because they believe that if he continues with his investigation of the use or abuse of the Paris Club refund, they will tell their senators not to approve his nomination…so, really, you want somebody that is not expected to do the job of the chairman of the EFCC.
For that alone, Magu should be appointed because that is really the best recognition that they can give. “
