Go and write a petition and substantiate in the petition and find out if I won’t act. It is not for us to listen to people on radio and begin to act.
Yes, we have intelligence but the surest way to get action is to go and write a petition and substantiate the contents of the petition and see whether I will not act.”
Magu told newsmen at a news conference in Abuja that the commission could not “wait endlessly’’ to prosecute the former minister on several allegations of impropriety against her while in office.
