The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] has denied decorating Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, as “Anti-Corruption Ambassador”.
The anti-graft agency made the denial in a statement issued on Wednesday and made available to Elombah.com.
The statement copied below says:
The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to some reports in the print and online media, on April 20, 2016 on Ike Ekweremadu.
The reports claimed that the anti-graft agency has decorated the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, as “Anti-Corruption Ambassador”.
That was according to a statement issued to the Press by the Special Adviser to the Deputy Senate President, Uche Anichukwu.
The statement claimed that the purported decoration, was carried out by the EFCC National Assembly Liaison Officer, Suleiman Bakari.
Bakari who was quoted to have said:
“On behalf of my acting chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Mustafa Magu and the entire management and staff of the EFCC, decorate you as an Anti- Corruption Ambassador.
“[We] formally present this frame, as a token of our appreciation to your person and office.
“[And as a symbol of the institutional partnership between the EFCC and the National Assembly”.]
The EFCC totally dissociates itself from the purported action of Sulaiman Bakari as he acted entirely on his own.
He clearly acted outside his brief as a liaison officer.
The management of the Commission at no time mandated him to decorate Ekweremadu or any officer of the National Assembly as Anti- Corruption Ambassador.
The statutory mandate of the EFCC is the investigation and prosecution of all economic and financial crimes cases.
It does not include the decoration of individuals as anti- corruption ambassadors.
The Commission is not in the habit of awarding titles to individuals.
