Buhari, Magu observe Jumaat in Aso Rock
The embattled acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu was among Muslim faithfuls that observed their jumaat prayer at the State House mosque in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari was also at the jumaat prayer service.
Magu’s nomination was rejected for the second time by the Senate on Wednesday.
The Presidency is yet to decide whether it will represent Magu’s name to the Senate or present a new nominee.
It is still awaiting communication from the National Assembly before it will react to the latest development.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina had said on his Twitter account that the Presidency was yet to receive any communication from the Senate.
“The Presidency will respond to the non-clearance of Magu as EFCC boss, after it receives official communication in writing from the Senate,” it stated.
