A source revealed to THEWILL that President Muhammadu Buhari would not be renominating Ibrahim Magu who has been on the job in acting capacity since November 9 , 2015.
The source who wants to remain anonymous revealed that Buhari has drawn a list of possible replacement for the EFCC boss .
The list has names of retired top police officers like Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Sani Usman and Diseye Nsirim-Poweigba, a former police commissioner in Niger State, who retired from service in 2014 .
Mr. Usman, a native of Bauchi State, represented the North East and held the position of DIG in charge of Training and Development before his forced retirement in 2019, following the appointment of then AIG Muhammed Abubakar Adamu, his junior, as Inspector-General of Police.
You would recall that Ms. Nsirim-Poweigba, from Bayelsa State, unsuccessfully contested for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.
The President is expected to send his eventual nominee to the Senate for approval as required by law. Watch this space for update.
