This is what the wail­ers are afraid of and that is why the Sen­ate re­fused to con­firm the EFCC boss as the sub­stan­tive chair­man. How­ever, I am glad that Magu is not de­terred by the lack of sup­port from the leg­is­la­ture. He is car­ry­ing out his du­ties dili­gently and I pray that Almighty Al­lah con­tin­ues to bless and pro­tect him.

I urge the Nige­rian gov­ern­ment to con­struct a prison in Sam­bisa for­est, so that any­one con­victed of steal­ing pub­lic funds can be sent there. Such dras­tic de­ci­sion will de­ter oth­ers who may want to de­fraud the coun­try.

I don’t think the EFCC is do­ing any­thing fan­tas­tic. Had it been it was per­form­ing as it should, by now many peo­ple ac­cused of loot­ing gov­ern­ment funds would have been in jail. Most of the cases are still pend­ing be­cause the EFCC has not pre­sented enough ev­i­dence to the court. The com­mis­sion should do more.

How many peo­ple have been jailed for cor­rup­tion since this gov­ern­ment came into power? It is not just about talk­ing, it should be backed by ac­tion. It is only when we be­gin to see con­vic­tions that we will know that the EFCC is work­ing.

As far as I am con­cerned, the EFCC is only fight­ing those in op­po­si­tion. The fight is se­lec­tive. May God pro­tect the EFCC chair­man and all those work­ing in the com­mis­sion. The job is not an easy one.

The EFCC is not be­ing fair in its cor­rup­tion fight. There are many peo­ple in the so­ci­ety who have been ac­cused of steal­ing funds but are walk­ing about freely. That should not be the case. The EFCC should treat all Nige­ri­ans equally.

I like the state­ment. That is ex­actly what I ex­pect the EFCC to do. Fight cor­rup­tion and save the coun­try from loot­ers. I am happy that a man like Magu is head­ing the com­mis­sion.

Many peo­ple in the coun­try are cor­rupt. The EFCC has a huge task on its hands.

Ku­dos to the EFCC boss! He is do­ing well and I know that no­body can stop him.
