President Muhammadu Buhari Commissions EFCC’s New N24bn Headquarters




President Buhari Commissions New EFCC Headquarters

President Muhammadu Buhari is presently back in Abuja to formally commission the new Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) headquarter office, located in Jabi, Abuja.

President Buhari while commissioning  the  10-storey building said that his main objective his fighting corruption and also to protect  the public trust of Nigerians.


The construction of the 10-storey building was approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), during the administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan, on November 24, 2010.

With growing criticism over the cost of the building, acting EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, said the project is worth it to make the war against corruption more efficient.

While speaking on Channels Television on Tuesday, he said,

“It’s not for me to defend. It’s for the professional to come and see it to assess whether it is worth whatever it is. It’s worth it.

“We need to move to a better place because we’re occupying rented quarters. As it is now, we have our men and facilities and sessions, investigations and prosecutions scattered in rented quarters so this does not give a secure confidentiality of documents and so, if you put everyione in one house, I think you get a better coordination.”
