The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was rejected by the Nigerian Senate thereby stopping his confirmation as the chairman of the anti-graft agency.
The Senate had rejected Magu for the second time in three months on Wednesday, March 15 citing a report by the Department of State Service (DSS).

The Senate’s decision to reject Magu followed a report from the DSS which again disqualified the EFCC chief based on his failure of an integrity test by the secret police.
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.
Melaye read Paragraph 14 of the DSS letter on Magu which stated: “In the light of the foregoing, Magu has failed the integrity test and will eventually constitute a liability to the anti-corruption stand of the current government.”
Replying Melaye, Magu slammed the DSS saying that the organisation had shown it had a problem when it released two different reports on him to the Senate late last year.
