    The presidency has denied media reports that it has authorised the sack of Ibrahim Magu as the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

    The presidency made this known in series of tweets by Garba Shehu, the spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari.

    Recall there was a media report that Magu has been redeployed back to Nigerian Police Force (NPF) in a move to pave way for a fresh person to be presented by President Buhari as the nominee to head the anti-graft agency before the Senate.

    It was also alleged that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has already issued a leter to Magu on the development and directed that he hands over to the Director of Operations in the Commission.

    Magu’s nomination was recently rejected by the Senate following allegation of graft levelled against him by the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
