On Wednesday the Senate again rejected Magu’s nomination after President Muhammadu Buhari renominated him.

Earlier in December last year, the Senate declined to confirm him citing a State Security Service’s report indicting him for corruption.

But billionaire businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim described the senate’s decision not to confirm Magu’s nomination as ‘unending drama’ in a post on his Instagram page, @JimohIbrahimOFR.

He wrote: “A senate headed by a person facing corruption charges rejects the appointment of the head of a corruption commission. The unending drama!!!”

Not few senators in the 8th national assembly are currently facing corruption charges. The list includes, Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Zamfara State governor, Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima, Senator Danjuma Goje, Senators Abdullahi Adamu, Abdulaziz Murtala Nyako, Joshua Chibi Dariye, Godswill Obot Akpabio and Ike Ekweremadu.
