Remove EFCC & ICPC From Malami’s Control – Prof. Sagay Advises Buhari
Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to remove the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC) from the control and supervision of the Ministry of Justice.
Speaking to Daily Independent on Sunday, Sagay said he is unhappy with frequent attempts by Abubakar Malami (SAN), the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, to whittle down the powers of the two anti-corruption agencies, especially that of Ibrahim Magu, the acting EFCC chairman.
Sagay, whose committee has recommended Magu for reappointment by President Buhari for a second term, said it is worrisome that the Ministry of Justice headed by Malami is treating both the EFCC and ICPC as rivals while taking actions aimed at frustrating their efforts.
“I will strongly recommend that the EFCC and ICPC be taken away from the supervision of the Ministry of Justice. The regular interference of the ministry in their work is seriously slowing down the anti-corruption war”, he said.
