Special Adviser to Presidemt Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that the president would communicate his reaction to the news of the rejection for confirmation of Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC), Ibrahim Magu, to the Senate in writing.
Magu was screened by the Senate, on Wednesday, three months after his confirmation was first rejected but at the end of the second screening, his confirmation was refused again.
In addition, the Senate insisted that Magu had lost the power to continue in the capacity as acting chairman of the EFCC and thus President Buhari should re-nominate another person for the position.
Adesina, in a tweet, said that President Buhari would duly respond to the rejection when the Senate sends him an official letter.
The rejection of Magu has raised suspicion that President Buhari has lost some of his powers with speculation that he was not in charge anymore.
