Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been invited to speak at on anti-corruption in London.
EFCC’s spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren said the invitation came days after Senate rejection of his nomination.
“It also coincidentally comes a few days after members of the Nigerian Senate chose to overlook the strides achieved by Magu, and instead refused his re-nomination by President Muhammadu Buhari as the substantive chairman of the EFCC.”
“The international conference, which is coming on the heels of the 2016 London Anti-Corruption Summit, will focus on the progress of Nigeria’s asset recovery and anti-corruption efforts. It will also feature a panel discussions for “critical exchange of views” between officials and non-government experts from Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
