Work Has To Be Done With Or Without Senate’s Confirmation
The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has disclosed that corruption work has to be continued with or without senate’s confirmation of his appointment and that he wont allow that issue to discourage him from carrying out his responsibilities.
The anti-graft agency boss made this known shortly after he visited the Lagos State Chief Judge, Mrs Opeyemi Oke, at her office at the Ikeja High Court, on Monday.
Speaking to journalists after the visit, Magu stated that the agency would continue to intensify its fight against corruption in 2018.
When asked on the effect of the non-confirmation of his appointment, Magu replied that, “Whether there is a confirmation or not, the work must be done. At least, you recognize that we are working and the anti-graft agency is mobilizing everyone to support in the unified fight against corruption.”
“Everybody has a responsibility in this fight and we are here to mobilize you also. It’s been a tough one and we are going to increase the tempo in the fight against corruption this year. This time, we are fighting hard like never before.”
“We cannot fight corruption alone so we need the individual effort of journalists or judicial correspondents also. Journalists must join us in the fight and desist from collecting brown envelopes.”
“I want to thank you all for supporting what we are doing and urge you all to continue the good work.”
