Professor Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption (PACA) has taken Senators and members of the House of Representatives to the cleaners.
He said; “I wish to appeal to the Senate to consider the speedy confirmation of the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu who has done magnificent work so far in the years of being in that position and who will be a good companion to the legislature in achieving the aims of anti-corruption in this country.”
“We also want to bring before the Senate, some of the criticisms of the public in the area of oversight. There is this constant complain that members of committees demand some form of gratification before they would visit a place or write anything favourable abut the MDA.”
“We appeal to the leadership to look into it and ensure that the oversight work of the senate does not involve anything that will be described as extortion. This issue of constituency project has been a controversial one.”
“I don’t want to express any opinion. all I want to plead is that you look into it and ensure that it is something of benefit to the constituents and constituencies of this country and not a subject of controversy anymore.”
