The Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has not given an official proclamation on acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu, its Chairman Prof Itse Sagay (SAN) said on Tuesday.
He said the announcement gave on Monday by a part, Prof Femi Odekunle, was his closely-held conviction and doesn’t speak to PACAC’s position.
Odekunle’s announcement read: “This is a primer response of PACAC to the affirmed ‘capture’ of Magu… ”
He blamed Attorney-General for the Federation Abubakar Malami (SAN) of lacking duty to the counter join war and being the pointed stone of intensity coalitions that need Magu out.
Odekunle said Malami’s prior notice requiring Magu’s evacuation and the EFCC’s supervisor’s challenge to show up before a test board over claims of maltreatment of office “appear to be a result of strategic maneuver by power alliances in the passageways of intensity where Malami seems, by all accounts, to be an arrow point or significant specialist”.
Be that as it may, Sagay, in an announcement by PACAC Communications Officer Aghogho Agbahor, said Odekunle represented himself.
“The consideration of the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has been attracted to an announcement flowing in the media space credited to one of its individuals Prof Femi Odekunle.
“The public statement is the genuine belief of the part under whose name it was discharged and not that of the council.
