Candidates with corruption cases to be charged before poll — Magu

Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu said all candidates for the next year’s election who are being investigated by the commission would be dragged to court before the polls.

Speaking to journalists at State House, Abuja during the launching of Africa Youth Congress Against Corruption by President Muhammadu Buhari, he said nobody would be spared.


“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 said.

He, however  declined comment on the bribery allegation against Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state, saying  “The case is in court and I would not want to comment on it.”


Our correspondent reports that Daily Nigerian, had published stories and videos alleging that the Kano state Governor Ganduje collected $5 Million as kickback from contractors.

He said this year alone the commission had dragged 264 people to court for corruption related cases.

On campaign spending, he said the commission  is monitoring what the candidates are putting into their campaigns.

“It is not only here in this country, we are also partnering with other countries to monitor campaign money,” he said.

Magu while soliciting for the support of the general public, he said, “ we have no option than for everybody to support the fight against corruption.”
