The Lagos State Chapter of Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO), has urged the Senate to cancel its decision on Mr Ibrahim Magu, acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission.
State Coordinator of BYO Mr AbdulWaheed Odunuga, said in Lagos on Saturday that it was unimaginable that the Senate found it difficult to confirm Magu’s appointment.
The organisation said that Magu had not been charged and found guilty as charged in any reputable court of law.
”It is disappointing to see the Nigeria Senate finding it difficult to confirm the appointment of Magu, who has been acting in the same capacity for the past 13 months.
”It is not right that the Senate is only acting on a clandestine security report that has yet to be filed for necessary litigation.
”We are calling on the Senate to rescind its decision until Magu is found guilty as charged in the reputable court of law.
”Otherwise, they should act in line with the same motion that kept the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki as the leader of the Senate, despite being tried in the Code of Conduct Tribunal, ” he said.
Odunuga said that the agency under the leadership of the nominated chairman had been adding value to the 2017 Budget through the recovery of funds.
According to him, this act alone should have earned him a national recognition rather than rejection fueled by tutelage.
He said that the youth organisation would not fold its arms and let fears for good governance and corruption cripple the country any further.
“We are also using this medium to call the attention of National Assembly to the proposed bill for Special Court for Corruption for prompt passage.
“The court will aid quick recovery of more disputable looted funds to resuscitate the nation’s economy, ” he said.
