Buhari is not in charge! Nigerians lament over Magu's rejection

- The rejection of Ibrahim Magu by the Nigerian Senate is still generating reactions across the country

- The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was rejected for the second time by the red chamber

- Magu's rejection has now subjected President Muhammadu Buhari to criticisms

Following the Senate's rejection of Ibrahim Magu as the EFCC boss for the second time, Nigerians have now shifted their focus to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Nigerians query President Buhari's ability to lead after Magu's rejection

Is President Buhari fully in charge of his government?

Many are asking if the president is truly in charge, especially as cited a security report from the Department of State Services (DSS) as reason for its action.

Both the DSS and the EFCC are under the purview of the president, which gives the impression that all is not well in the presidency.

Ibrahim Magu, a victim of power play?

There have been rumours of a powerful cabal around the president, said to be in charge and always have their way, even when it is against national interest.

The cabal reportedly frustrated efforts to get Magu confirmed after the EFCC boss exposed the N500 million bribe the president's chief of staff, Abba Kyari collected from MTN, for helping the South African telecoms giant to reduce their fine.

Although another report stated that seven governors and some high-profile Nigerians plotted the removal of Magu due to what was described as his very strong stance against corruption.

According to a source, Magu irritated the governors over the ongoing probe of the alleged diversion of N19 billion from the London-Paris Club loan refund.
