About seven state governors are believed to have been part of the plot to stop the Senate confirmation of Mr. Ibrahim Magu as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Three of them, according to The Nation, are from the South-South, two from the South-West, two from the North and one from the South-East.
One of the governors was said to have vowed to do everything to stop Magu’s confirmation, including emptying the vault of his state.
It was learnt that the governors have also been joined by a few former ministers and ex-governors who are under investigation by the anti-graft commission.
Recall that on December 15, The Nigerian Senate refused to confirm Magu’s nomination for the job, citing security report.
Fresh information on the Senate action on Saturday cited the seven governors as part of the Stop Magu Plot.
