The House of Representative is resolved to fully support the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in its determined efforts to tackle corruption and economic crimes in Nigeria.
Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Narcotics, Financial Crimes and Anti- Corruption, Hon. Kayode Oladele gave this indication Tuesday, during an interactive meeting with the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
Earlier on Monday, December 14, The Senate also pledged its support for the ongoing fight against corruption in Nigeria.
Chairman Senate Committee on Anti-corruption and Financial Crimes, Senator Chukwuka Utazi made the pledge when the committee received the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
He said the Senate fully supports the anti- corruption programme of the Muhammadu Buhari administration and promised to work closely with the Commission to overcome its challenges and ensure that it lived up to the expectation of Nigerians.
“It is a daunting job, at times thankless but we have to make sure this country is good, and good for our children. The journey must start now,” Senator Utazi said.
He equally advised the EFCC to refocus its anti-graft strategy by de-emphasizing enforcement activities in favour of prevention.
“We have to get it right now that we have a new chairman at the EFCC and we won’t dissipate energies moving from one court to another,” he said.
