EFCC Celebrates 14th Anniversary

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim
Magu, stated in an interview session with staff to mark it’s 14th year anniversary that the
commission will always fight in ensuring that
corruption is completely wiped out in Nigeria, a
development that will ensure Nigeria retains her position in the comity of nations.
He encouraged the staff to uphold the core values of the Commission and said it was necessary to put more efforts in the ongoing fight against corruption as that is the only way succour can be brought to Nigeria. <!--more-->
We will continue to fight corruption whether
anybody likes it or not. Because, we know that,
that is the only way we can bring succor to this
country. Now that we have found ourselves in
this position, please, let us put heads together”,
Magu said.
He also encouraged that the public should furnish
him with information on how the Commission
can move forward; information on the wrong
things they are doing, in order for them to be
addressed so that the image of the Agency will
not be tarnished.
He said:
My door is completely opened. If something is
going on wrong, please come and tell me. If you
don’t want to show your face, just write a letter
to me. Information is very important. I am alone,
if you don’t tell me what is wrong, I would not
know” he said.
He added that he doesn’t want to know what is
right and that the public should state how to
correct the system itself because the system
needs correction every day.
People are complaining about corruption in the
EFCC, which is not good. We should not allow
some individuals to spoil our names here”, he
Magu who said that the efforts being made by
the Commission in fighting corruption, is fast
gaining recognition in the international
communities, charged the staff to shun the wrong
things and be part of the success story. He said it
was necessary to always remember to put the
interest of the nation first.
If you go to United States of America and the
United Kingdom, they are all awash with news
about us because of this Malabu case. So we are
succeeding. Be part of the success. Forget about
your own interest. Consider the overall interest of
this country and the interest of the nation.
