Those who had taken their turns before Buhari were the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai; the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; and the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris.

Magu again avoided journalists after the prayer. He left the forecourt of the Presidential Villa through the Service Chiefs’ Gate, avoiding journalists who were waiting in front of the Press Gallery.

The Senate had rejected Magu’s nomination twice having done so the first time in December 2016.

The acting EFCC boss looked to be doing well during his screening for the position at the Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, March 15 when Senator Dino Melaye revealed that the upper house of legislature had received a letter saying Magu was not qualified for the job because he failed integrity test. by the secret police.

To some Nigerians, Magu’s rejection by the Senate again shows that some powerful forces are at play against the acting chief of the anti-corruption agency. They are however adamant that Magu remains the right man for the job.
