EFCC Vows To Eliminate Corruption From Nigeria In 12 Months
The kingdom of God suffereth violence, and the violent taketh it by force. If we rephrase that words and put “Nigeria” as the subject of the “kingdom,” truly you will tell righteousness exalt a nation. Perhaps we have found a saint to exalt her nation and this time Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) agency has come up with words of assurance in the next twelve months.
President Muhammadu Buhari on his own said that the Federal Government under his watch had taken the anti-corruption war to another height with the recent release of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, which he said, would end the frequent removal of heads of the EFCC.
Magu, who spoke with some select journalists yesterday at the commissioning of its South-West Zonal headquarters in Ibadan, on his tone said that he was unruffled with his non-confirmation as the agency’s boss, but that the fight against corruption in the country has now become full blown and he is focused and more determined to tackle the scourge head on.
His words; “I am not bothered by the refusal to confirm my appointment by the National Assembly. On the contrary, it gives me more courage. I work like there is no tomorrow. I work to the last minute.’’ I feel like believing on Mugu but his deed leave me speechless.
