Senators Hold Secret Meeting In Dubai Over Magu
Some Senators have held a secret meeting in Dubai to consider pressure on them to have a rethink on their decision on Magu. Some of those at the session were said to be “strategic” to decision making in the Senate.
A Senate source said:”There has been pressure on Senators since a decision was taken not to consider the President’s request on Magu.
“Some Senators actually held a meeting in Dubai on how to handle the aftermath of the Senate’s decision on Magu, including public opinion and the implications on the unity of the Senate.
“You know, the Senate is not totally united on Magu’s fate. Ndume and some Senators have a different perspective on how the Senate ruled out the confirmation request on Magu.
“Some Senators may join issue with Senate leadership on its last decision on Magu. Yet, preserving the unity of the Senate is more paramount than any other thing.
“Many influential Nigerians have also intervened on behalf of the Acting EFCC chairman. They are asking the Senate to revisit the confirmation whenever the president sends a fresh request. We are all products of different constituencies and districts; we cannot be deaf to all these lobbyists.”
Meanwhile, Magu, unruffled by reports that he had been fired as acting Chairman of EFCC, yesterday asked those displaced by Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East not to be demoralised by their present predicament.
They should rather be strong, he said, pledging an end to their travails soon.
