President Buhari Ought to Sack Ibrahim Magu In Order to Restore Confidence within the Neutrality of Nigeria’s Civil Service and Safety Businesses
On the morning of Tuesday Might 15, 2018, Nigerians woke as much as the unusual sight of the appearing Chairman of the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee, EFCC, giving an interview on ‘Dawn Every day’, a breakfast TV present on Channels Tv, carrying a lapel pin selling the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Not because the darkish days of Normal Sani Abacha have Nigerians seen the sort of disturbing behaviour.
The motion by Ibrahim Magu, went towards the ethics and rules of the Nigerian civil service in addition to the service guidelines for army and police personnel.
Nigerian Civil servants are mandated by regulation to be politically impartial so that all civil servants can render unbiased and constant service to any authorities that involves energy legitimately, no matter the political celebration that produced such a authorities.
Moreover, In a decision adopted by the United Nations Normal Meeting relating to the Worldwide Code of Conduct for Public Officers, for which Nigeria is a signatory and sure by, the UN said within the 11th precept that: “the political or different exercise of public officers exterior the scope of their workplace shall, in accordance with legal guidelines and administrative insurance policies, not be akin to to impair public confidence within the neutral efficiency of their capabilities and duties”.
That being the case, how can President Muhammadu Buhari, who swore on the Quran to abide by the Structure of Nigeria which produced our civil service, stand idly by whereas his political appointee overtly and with impunity goes towards home and worldwide regulation in addition to the rules of pure justice?
The Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee, is supposed to be a impartial enforcer of Nigeria’s legal guidelines on financial and Monetary Crimes, however when the top of the physique overtly exhibits his partiality, how can these legal guidelines be utilized impartially? How can an open sympathizer of the All Progressive Congress be anticipated to conduct a good and stability warfare on corruption?
Just lately, the Buhari led administration launched a so referred to as ‘looters listing’ that solely contained names of distinguished opposition members. Not one All Progressive Congress member was included on that listing regardless of obtrusive circumstances of corruption towards them.
At the moment, I raised a purple flag and launched my very own looters listing of All Progressive Congress members.
Now, with Chairman Magu’s behaviour, I’m vindicated. The EFCC is combating a warfare on the opposition and never a warfare on corruption.
On March 24, 2018, a former Chief of Military Employees, Lieutenant Normal Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd) stated the safety companies “are usually not impartial”. The following day, the Buhari administration attacked him in a most disrespectful method. However with Ibrahim Magu’s motion of carrying President Buhari’s re-election lapel pin, has Danjuma not been vindicated?
Do Nigerians and the worldwide group now imagine me once I say that the EFCC underneath Buhari is nothing greater than the armed wing of the APC? It’s the Gestapo of the Presidency.
It’s for this identical cause why the Egmont Group suspended Nigeria as a result of the EFCC underneath Magu had been utilizing monetary intelligence acquired from the group to blackmail opposition parts.
Egmont stated it droop Nigeria “following repeated failures on the a part of the FIU, (Nigeria) to deal with issues relating to the safety of confidential info.”
No surprise Nigeria has made its worse retrogression in Transparency Worldwide’s Corruption Notion Index, shifting 12 locations backward from the place the Jonathan administration left us, from 136, to 148. Nigeria is now extra corrupt as we speak underneath Buhari than it was underneath the earlier Jonathan administration.
I hereby name on President Muhammadu Buhari to revive religion in Nigeria’s civil service and its safety and army forces by instantly changing Ibrahim Magu because the appearing Chairman of the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee and imposing punitive measures on him to discourage different civil servants with an identical streak.
And if President Muhammadu Buhari fails to self-discipline Ibrahim Magu, as is anticipated, I name on the Nationwide Meeting, consistent with the doctrine of checks and balances, to not affirm Mr. Magu as substantive Chairman of the EFCC and refuse to offer budgetary provision for the company whereas he stays as appearing chairman.
Lastly, I name on the worldwide group to pay attention to the recession of democracy in Nigeria due to the actions and inactions of the Buhari administration.
