Magu: Buhari has mandated me to probe every corrupt Nigerian
Ibrahim Magu, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), says President Muhammadu Buhari has given him the mandate to investigate corrupt leaders, “irrespective of political affiliation”.
Speaking in Kaduna on Tuesday during a courtesy visit to the headquarters of the National Union of Textiles and Garment Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN), the anti-graft czar said the current administration’s fight against corruption is well structured.
“We have cause to investigate and in fact we are investigating even those that are in government without them knowing,” he said.
“Not only that, the president has given me the mandate to investigate every corrupt Nigerian leader irrespective of his political affiliation.
“The fight against corruption is designed and structured to boost confidence in the economy as well as to attract investors both within and outside the country.”
Magu said with the political will demonstrated by Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, the country will win the fight against corruption.
