Ibrahim Magu, the Acting chairman of the EFCC has said his rejection by the Senate will not stop his anti-corruption fight.
The Senate, on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, rejected Magu’s confirmation as EFCC chairman.
According to Daily Trust, Magu said the alleged report by the Department of State Services will not stop him from fighting corruption.
He also said “My priority is to fight corruption. My confirmation has not changed anything. We have always been on duty I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation.
“The greatest violation against human right is crime against the society and the humanity but everybody has a duty and responsibility to fight corruption and I also has a responsibility. I assure you that we will fight to finish.
“We will never be deterred because what we are doing is trying to investigate what has gone before and protect the future of our children and our future generation. So, if we don’t work today and fight against corruption, the future is not guaranteed, the future of our children is not guaranteed.
“So, we must wake up, where ever you find yourself, fight corruption. Anytime you discover that I am corrupt, expose me.”
The co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign, Oby Ezekwesili has described Magu’s rejection by the Senate as a national disgrace.
