The Nation reports that there were strong indications that the Assembly might use the removal of Magu as a condition for the consideration of all outstanding appointments in the Senate.
According to reliable source, who spoke in confidence, a Senator from the South-West re-echoed the need for the removal of Magu at the rapprochement dinner.
The top source said: “The face-off between the Executive and the National Assembly over Magu reared its ugly head again at a dinner the President had with the principal officers of the legislature.
“What was meant for a new rapprochement by the two arms was turned into an agitation session with a Senator from the South-West demanding the sack of the Acting EFCC chairman. “The Senator wanted to know why the resolution of the Senate on Magu was not complied with.
“Although a principal officer from the House of Representatives actually backed the Senator, the President was non-committal. He actually glossed over the request. “The lawmakers felt a bit shocked that the President was not forthcoming on their request.”
“Apart from the concern over Magu, a principal officer of the House of Representatives also shocked the President on how he raised issues over non-appointment of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) into key positions.
“The affected principal officer said lack of empowerment of APC members was making loyalty to the government difficult.” However, findings revealed that Mr President is not in support because there are more than seven suits in the court over Magu’s continued stay in office.
