The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has said that his non-confirmation would not deter him from fighting corruption.
Magu said this on Wednesday when he was paid a courtesy visit by a civil society group immediately after his rejection by the senate for the second time as the substantial chairman of the commission on the grounds of failing ‘integrity test’.
“My priority is to fight corruption. My non-confirmation has not changed anything I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation,” Magu said.
He lamented that the report of the DSS cannot stand the test of time.
“You know, you can’t just raise mere allegations without giving the person opportunity to answer you. There is also the issue of fundamental human right, right of fair hearing.
“Up till this time, DSS has not called me, and I am even surprised that the same report is coming back. I doubt the genuineness of that report, but I think we need to identify those who have the interest of this country at heart”, he said.
According to Daily Trust, Magu said the aim of the anti-graft war was to “recover what has got lost before and protect the future of our children.”
