What Magu told me when Jonathan was in power – Saraki

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has disclosed what the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu told him during a personal encounter they shared when former President Goodluck Jonathan was in power.

Saraki said that when he and some of his colleagues at the 7th Senate were sent to the anti-graft agency to be investigated because they opposed some issues, Magu told him he would refuse to be used by any head of State to witch-hunt political adversaries.

He made this known in Abuja when he featured on a stakeholders forum organized by the News Agency of Nigeria which was well attended by members of the political class as well as journalists.

The Senate president, who did not go into details, praised Magu for doing the “right thing”.

He said: “As an individual, I have had a personal experience with Magu, where he stood up for what is right.

“I remember during the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, where because we were fighting some of the issues then, some of us were sent to the EFCC.

“I remember I was sent to Magu’s office. They were trying to get him to investigate something of 10 years, 12 years ago; I remember Magu said nobody was going to use him.”
