Ola Ajayi – Ibadan
THE Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, said on Wednesday the Commission would be “harder” on treasury looters.
Magu disclosed this to journalists during his official visit to the Ibadan office of the Commission.
He said: “The year 2020 promises to be better and greater as we are poised to work harder and intensify efforts in stamping out corruption in our dear country.
“We will be harder on looters. We will pursue them more vigorously and ensure that they return their loots. We promise Nigerians that we will maintain our standard of ensuring that there is no sacred cow in the fight against corruption.”
Magu scored the Commission high in 2019, noting it was a great year as it recorded an unprecedented success in all fronts.
To demonstrate the EFCC’s hard stance against corruption, the chairman hinted that a 10 million-man march against corruption would take place across the country on February 14.
He added: “It is in line with this spirit that the Commission is starting the year’s milestone events with a specially-packaged 10 million-Man March Against Corruption and this has been slated for February 14, 2020. The march is organised in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).”
