Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday said nobody can remove Ibrahim Magu as the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Speaking in Kaduna while commissioning a zonal office of the EFCC, Osinbajo, who was represented by the state governor, Nasir el-Rufai, described Magu as a “nightmare for corrupt people”.

“We have confidence in Magu to fight corruption to a standstill. He will remain the EFCC chairman as long as I remain the acting president and as long as Muhammadu Buhari remains the president,” he said.

“For those thinking that corruption is beginning to win this war, Magu will remain their nightmare for the next two years or six years as the case may be.”

The Senate had called for the removal of Magu, whose nomination it rejected twice, from his role as the antigraft agency’s boss.

Making personal remarks, el-Rufai said over N500m had been recovered from corrupt officials of the past government and some contractors in Kaduna.

He added that those officials would be handed over to the EFCC for prosecution.
