My attention was recently drawn to the publication in an online media; http://newsrescue.com  with the caption: As Saraki bags title in Zamfara, society now rewards thieves, treasury looters with chieftaincy titles,” Magu says
I wouldn’t have reacted to the publication, but considering the recent activities of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, of using the media to conclude major cases before the EFCC, instead of the law court.

Recalled that in his speech at the 2017 Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) Week/award day, Magu had lamented the situation where treasury looters get rewarded with positions of authority and chieftaincy titles, and he further said values such as hard work and integrity were no more regarded.

 Magu, who was represented by A Bello, added that society “now recognises thieves and looters of the common treasury, by rewarding them with chieftaincy titles and other high positions of authority.”

I want ask Magu to name any convicted “looters of the common treasury” that has been rewarded with chieftaincy titles and other high positions of authority.  

I appreciate his comment that “the process must start from our homes.” It is time the EFCC acting chairman comes out to tell the true state of the Department of State Service (DSS) report against him.

He who must go to equity must go with clean hands. It is time Magu comes out to tell Nigerians the owners of the so-called recovered “N521,815,000.00; $53,272, 747.00; £122,890.00, and €547,730.00.”

 He should also publish the names of the “recorded 62 convictions” in the first quarter of 2017 that the EFCC has convicted, rather than engaging in media war against “innocent until proven guilty” suspects.

It is high time Magu stops media trial and face the work he is assigned to do. Media trial sympathy will not earn him confirmation by the National Assembly.
