EFCC Boss Calls For Joint Efforts In Tackling Corruption
Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has thanked the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara and other stakeholders at the National Assembly for the continued support shown to the commission.
Magu said this while he was briefing journalist on the status of the ultra modern EFCC head office, which has been in plans since 2010.
Magu lauded the Executive and the Legislature for fighting bravely against corruption.
“I thank Mr President for according this project a priority. It is part of his commitment to the anti-graft war. This is a legacy project, which many generations will be proud of.”
“This commission is grateful to the National Assembly for its interest in the project. Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, chairmen and members of committees on Anti-corruption always visited the site to monitor the work. It shows that if we are determined, we can be on the same page on this war against corruption.”
He was also hopeful that in May, the commission would play host to heads of anti-graft agencies from other African nations, especially as it is currently at 95% completion.
“We are hosting heads of anti-graft agencies in the Commonwealth (Africa chapter) in May and we are hopeful the headquarters will be ready for occupation because it is more than 95 per cent completed.”
