Senate Majority Leader, Ali Ndume, has refuted claims that the Senate last week rejected the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Fielding questions at the Presidential Villa yesterday, Senator Ndume told State House correspondents shortly after he met with President Muhammadu Buhari that security report from the Directorate of State Security (DSS) which bordered on allegations of corruption prevented the Senate from going ahead with the confirmation

The lawmaker insisted that the Senate did not reject Magu, adding that “when we slated his confirmation for that Thursday, we could not go ahead because we have a letter from the DSS that we could not ignore and which could not allow us to continue with the confirmation.”
