Amidst accusations and counter accusations following the investigation of the suspended Ex-acting EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, the presidency has said Nigerians should not be distracted by the various media outrage coming from those being investigated; while announcing that from scanting information from the investigation panel available to the presidency far from, Nigerians should expect surprises.
This is coming few days after the news on the social media indicated that Magu will be reinstated. Thus, One therefore wonders how the reinstatement of Magu can become a surprise to Nigerians. But what can be a surprise to Nigerians will be the dept of corruption and the extent to which Magu and his team currently under investigated, could have used the EFCC to achieve their corruption drive; which they have so far denied. However, Nigerians will only be surprised at what the panel has been able to unearth, if truly Magu went on a corruption expedition with the EFCC as his tool.
This revelation from the presidency of an anticipatory surprises, was made by President Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who said Nigerians should prepare for surprises, as the presidential panel investigating suspended Ibrahim Magu, gets set to submit its reports.
While speaking on the Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Sunday, Shehu agreed that Presidency has been receiving limited updates from the Presidential Panel led by Justice Ayo Salami.
Shehu went further to add that “I am not going to pre-empt the panel investigation but I just advice Nigerians to hold their hearts in their hands. By the time they are done with this job and they come out with the reports prepare yourselves for surprises.
Speaking further and on why Nigerians should not be distracted Shehu maintained “I don’t know what will come out but if the sense we are getting from what is being done over there is anything to go by, I think that Nigerians should not be confused by any outbursts by anybody,”
With this coming from The presidency, the assumption of a soft landing or a possible reinstatement for Magu, could just be a mere illusion on the part of those who love and sympathize with him. If for nothing, Magu's investigation, even though it is clearly an episode in the power play drama among the president's men, is a good thing for Nigeria. As this will henceforth deter any other subsequent EFCC chairman and his loyalise from using the agency to corruptly enrich themselves, as Magu has been accused of.
With this statement from the presidency, the assumption for a soft landing or a possible reinstatement of Magu to his position as the EFCC chairman is hugely out of the way, as prosecution of every involved in the said use of the EFCC for self enrichment is most certain. Still, as Shehu has said, Nigerians are eagerly waiting for and expecting the surprises from the panel reports.
