The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, said that the agency will prosecute all political candidates being investigated for corruption charges before the commencement of the 2019 general elections.
According to Daily Trust, Magu disclosed this while speaking at the launching of Africa Youth Congress Against Corruption in Abuja. He said:
“By the grace of God, all those candidates who have cases with us will be charged to court before the election. I don’t want to personalize it.”
He, however, said his agency cannot yet act on allegations of bribe-taking leveled against Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, because the case is in court.
“The case is in court and I would not want to comment on it.”
