The war of words between the Executive and Legislature seems to have been re-ignited after Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Monday threw a shade at President Muhammadu Buhari’s approach to fighting corruption.

About N17billion have been recovered so far following the introduction of the whistle-blower policy by the federal government, Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, said on Thursday.

Mr Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says the commission will soon launch its anti-corruption programme in universities across the country.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday met with the heads of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Department of State Security (DSS), the Nigeria Police Force and other security chiefs in his office at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has been rebuked by members of the Nigerian Senate over comments he made suggesting that the president did not need senate’s approval to appoint Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

There are indications that the Presidency may have finally settled for the removal of Ibrahim Magu, a deputy commissioner of police, as the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC.)

In an effort to cement the frosty relationship between the Presidency and the Senate, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has chided the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay, to watch his utterances capable of been misconstrued as an attack on the institution of the National Assembly.

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay (SAN), has warned the Nigerian Senate to withdraw its summon or face legal battle.

Ibrahim Magu, acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) EFCC, has written the publisher of the Sun Newspaper in Abuja seeking a N5 billion compensation and an apology.

Human rights lawyer Femi Falana, has described the suspension of Senator Ali Ndume as the height of the serial illegality in the senate.
