I Was Ordered By Buhari To Investigate His Government, Says EFCC Boss

EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu
The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime
Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, says he has orders from President Muhammadu
Buhari to investigate his appointees.

Magu said the Commission is able to investigate those
serving under the current administration because the APC-led government has the
political will to fight corruption.
He stated this in Kaduna on Tuesday, October 25, when he
paid a courtesy visit to the National Union of Textiles and Garment Tailoring
Workers of Nigeria in the state.
The EFCC boss said the President told him not to spare
anybody no matter highly-placed, stressing that the Commission’s fight against
corruption is not selective.
Magu said: “We have cause to investigate, and in fact,
we are investigating even those that are in government without them knowing.
“The President has given me the mandate to investigate
every Nigerian, irrespective of his political affiliation.
“The fight against corruption is designed and
structured to boost confidence in the economy as well as to attract investors
both within and outside the country.”

Earlier in his remark, the General Secretary of the Textiles
Workers Union, Alhaji Issa Aremu, had said the anti-corruption war should not
be seen as the EFCC and the ICPC’s job alone but a collective effort.
