The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has called on repentant looters to join the fight against corruption.
We are calling on every Nigerian to join us; you can even return loot, face consequences then join us to fight corruption.
He reportedly spoke at a parley with members of labour unions, civil society organizations, and social media personalities at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday.
In the statement, spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, said the EFCC boss harped on the need for a united front in the anti-corruption crusade.
We have reached a level where nobody can stop us in the fight against corruption.
But we all must realise that we are all stakeholders, and this fight is for the future generation.
Magum who reiterated his belief that corruption is the major factor impeding the country’s development, and the root cause of every evil in the land admitted that “the EFCC alone cannot fight and defeat corruption; the battle requires the support of everybody to be won.
All stakeholders must step up the battle; you are not doing it for yourself. You are doing it for the future of the country and the future generation in order to bring back the change that we really crave for.
The anti-corruption czar restated the commission’s resolve to intensify the anti-corruption campaign, urging the stakeholders to “maximise the political will being currently enjoyed under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Let us do the right thing and insist on it because change begins with you and me.
“From our households to our kids, places of work and beyond, by also living a life of integrity,” he stressed.topics from
