The Muslim Rights Concern has accused the Senate of working against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in its fight against corruption.
The rights group stated this following Thursday’s refusal of the upper legislative arm to confirm the appointment of Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
According to MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, in a statement on Friday, the Senate is a “weapon of mass destruction” set up to destroy President Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
“The Muslim Rights Concern is nonplussed by this development. It is an act of vengeance and a shameless anti-people decision. The rejection of Magu’s appointment by Senate is a declaration of hostilities against the anti-corruption crusade. The Senate has decided to take its pound of flesh for Magu’s no-nonsense stance in EFCC’s role in the war against corruption. But the Nigerian Senate has been too clever by half.”
