Lawmakers in the upper chamber of the National Assembly are meeting over the proposed confirmation of Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim magu.

According to media reports, plans by the Senate to screen Magu on Thursday, Dec 15 had led to confusion.

According to The Punch, the usual pre-session meeting of the principal officers, which holds at the Senate President’s office, was rowdy as senators were said to have engaged themselves in a shouting match.

A source who witnessed the clash said the Leader of the Senate, Senator Ali Ndume and Senator Dino Melaye, who was alleged to be against Magu’s confirmation, specifically engaged themselves at the meeting.

It was reported earlier that some forces within the Presidency are said to be against Magu’s emergence as the EFCC’s chairman and the Department of State Service (DSS) is also said to be a collaborator in the scheme to edge out the anti-corruption czar through a damning security report it has sent to the Senate against Magu.
