The Majority leader of the Senate, Senator Ali Ndume has said that his colleagues did not reject the nomination of Ibrahim Magu, the Economic and Financial Crimes (EFCC) boss.

According to Daily Post, Ndume made the revelation to newsmen after a closed door meeting with President Buhari at the Villa in Abuja on Monday, December 19, 2016.

The Senator said the Senate only stepped down Magu’s screening till all security concerns are resorted out.

He also said the Senate will let the President know its next step regarding the confirmation of the embattled EFCC boss.

The Senate reportedly rejected Magu’s confirmation following a Department of State Security Service (DSS) report that raised some allegations against the EFCC boss.

Meanwhile, the Senate has said it may reverse its earlier decision to reject the confirmation of  Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
