Senate Steps Down On Confirmation Of Buhari's Recs Over Magu's Leadership of EFCC

The Nigerian senate has stepped down on confirmation of Buhari's 27 REC nominees for 2 weeks in protest against Magu's continued headship of EFCC.

The Senators made the decision at Tuesday's plenary over what they termed as "Buhari's appointees' disrespect to the senate"

Sen. Anyanwu, while speaking at the plenary said "If the Senate is ridiculed our institution has been ridiculed, we will try as much as possible to promote this institution"

"Lets hear from Muhammadu Buhari on Magu's case, Magu is terrorising us, because we disqualified him", Sen. Francis Alimikhena who also supported the motion cited.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu stated that there's a time frame to stand down the confirmation and implored the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to convey their feelings to Mr. President.

Senate President Bukola Saraki then put the question and the confirmation of 27 INEC RECs was suspended for two weeks.
