President Buhari May Have Lost Confidence In EFCC



President Muhammadu Buhari may have lost confidence in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission following various allegations, leveled against its acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu by the Department of State Services (DSS). As a result, the Senate refused to confirm him as the substantial Chairman of the Commission.

The president seem to have now resort to using the Attorney General of the Federation in the main time to prosecute corrupt cases as he orders the AGF  to investigate the involvement of any top government officials accused of any wrong-doing. 

This was contained in a statement released this morning by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu

The statement reads;

''The attention of the presidency has been drawn to a number of reports in the media, in which various accusations of corruption have been levelled against some top officials in the administration.

In that regard, President Buhari has instructed the Attorney General of the Federation to investigate the involvement of any top government officials accused of any wrong-doing. If any of them are liable they will not escape prosecution''.

As a result of this development, the presidency has hinted the senate of an impending cabinet reshuffle next month. 

Erring ministers may be fired.
