Mr Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, attended the re-election gathering of President Buhari.
The event, which held on Tuesday at Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja, was exclusively billed as a consultative forum for politicians of the ruling All Progress Congress. It was put together by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups, a political action committee loyal to President Buhari.
According to Premiumtimes, Mr Magu was sighted at the event wearing his signature black suit, seating amidst APC heavyweights like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who represented an out-of-town Mr Buhari, and Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the party.
It came three weeks after service chiefs came under public ridicule after being sighted at the formal launch of Mr Buhari’s 2019 campaign at Transport Hilton, Abuja.
The presidency later explained the awkward affair, saying the military chiefs showed up because they thought the event was to showcase the president’s security achievements — and they hastily departed the venue after realizing it was political.
