The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after reviewing the reported circumstances surrounding the investigation of the indicted acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, demands his prosecution.
A statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan said “the party said that Magu’s
indictment reinforces its position that the much-hyped war against corruption by the EFCC, under his watch, has been a huge scam by corrupt individuals to cover the plundering of public resources, harass
political opponents, intimidate and extort money from innocent Nigerians.
“The party observed that the revelations of diversion of recovered funds and fraudulent sale of assets seized by the EFCC among other sleazes, as detailed in the memo by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, as well as the report of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Magu’s activities, have further exposed the racket that the fight against corruption had become under the All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
“The development has also exposed why corruption has worsened under the
Buhari administration, as documented by a credible international organization, including the Transparency International (TI).

“It is a big embarrassment to our nation, that the head of the anti-corruption agency in an administration led by the African Union (AU) anti-corruption champion and which prides itself on zero tolerance
for corruption, is being dragged in allegation of looting recovered fund
and other barefaced frauds.
“Now that the racket has been exposed, the onus lies on President Muhammadu Buhari to clean his Augean stable by not sweeping the matter under the carpet or seeking to provide a soft landing for the indicted
EFCC boss and shield him from prosecution.
“What Nigerians expect at this moment is for President Buhari to enforce
the law by directing relevant agencies to commence actions that would
lead to Magu’s prosecution in the court.
“Anything short of this will not be acceptable to Nigerians.”
