The former political ally of president Mohammadu Buhari, Buba Galadima has expressed his take on the removal, said that the removal of Ibrahim Magu is a show by the federal government to deceive Nigerians.
It was reported that Buba Galadima was of the view that the embattled EFCC Chairman was used and dumped by the government.
In the same interview Galadima accused members of the government of being responsible for the treatment received by Mr. Magu, after he began to step on their toes.
“Magu's suspension was very long overdue. Magu should have being long suspended from his position, but why it took Buhari’s administration 5 years to remove him is a surprise to many people, but for me, it is'nt” “He remained in that office for so long because he was doing the bidding of some very powerful people in Buhari’s administration. “it seems he obviously stepped on some toes, & that is why they have now decided to do away with him.” “I believe that Magu offended an influential cabal in Buhari’s administration, & that is why they decided to remove him,”. “I am not defending Magu, although I have never being an admirer but people should not be deceived, that Magu was sacked as a result of Buhari’s administration’s commitment to the anti corruption war. Magu is being made a scape-goat to create the illusion that Buhari's administration is fighting corruption. Mark my words, nothing will come out from Magu’s case. It is as though they want to entertain us, it's all a part of propaganda", Galadima was reported to have said.
According Galadima the current probe of the suspended EFCC chairman is likened to a circus, meant to entertain and deceive the people.
