Replying, Magu said, “I have conscience, in spite of the deliberate act to annoy me and make me think of throwing the towel, my conscience tells me that I should not give up. I shall continue to fight the corruption war until my last breath.

“My dream is to leave a better Nigeria, free of corruption to the next generation. We cannot continue the way we are going, otherwise, there will be no Nigeria For the next generation”, Magu said.

“This rubbish called corruption was caused by my generation, so it is our duty to fight it and annihilate it. We must leave a Better life for the next generation”, he added.

Magu also said he was encouraged by the political will of the government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We have a President who has a zero tolerance for corruption. I therefore have no excuse not to take advantage of the situation to make an indelible mark in the fight against corruption in Nigeria”.

    Magu should keep doing his thing, even Jesus Christ was criticized during his days and they didn’t overcome him still.

      Are you trying to tag Magu as messiah of corruption? If this is so, you need to think straight and see who Magu really his. Magu is nothing but a tool to torment the opposition members of APC, that’s who he is.
