The presidency has told Nigerians to expect more revelations as the probe into allegations of corruption continues against the suspended acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.
This was made known by President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, who said this while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Shehu said the committee set up to probe Mr. Magu will soon submit a report of its findings and “Nigerians should prepare for surprises”.
He was of the view that Mr. Buhari is recognized internationally for his fight against corruption.
“President Buhari deserves to be commended for his fight against corruption. Prepare yourselves for surprises and wait for the outcome of the investigation on Magu,” he said.
When asked about the ‘surprises’ Nigerians should expect, Mr. Shehu said “the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel has been updating the president on some of their findings, and Nigerians will be amazed as to the content of the panel’s report.”
Mr. Shehu, therefore, asked Nigerians to ignore reports “casting aspersions on the efforts of the Salami-led panel”…saying that Mr. Magu would be made to face the consequences if wrongdoings are detected.
Recall that Mr. Magu is currently being interrogated by a panel headed by the former president of the appeal court over allegations of corruption and insubordination leveled against him by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
He was arrested two weeks ago and was in detention for about 10 days before he was released. The panel is yet to conclude its work.
