Whoever says anti-graft agencies are not doing their jobs properly should have a re-think before making uninformed utterances meant to disparage them.
Recently, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, saved some potential foreign investors from losing over $12 billion to fraudsters and this huge accomplishment was achieved in less than two years.
Enough is enough of this humiliation. If we as Nigerians cannot save our nation and stop the embarrassing ways we do things, potential investors are bound to boycott us, except we change our ways. There are always better ways of making a living than money-laundering, terrorism financing, 419 etc.
I was so proud of Madam Waziri recently when she enumerated the various steps the EFCC has been taking to check the menace of corruption in our midst in order to make the country safe for foreign investments and investors. The Transaction Clearance Platform is one of such ways and I think potential investors have benefitted immensely from it.
If we could encourage and co-operate with these agencies by helping out, now and again, for example by whistle blowing, instead of condemning them all the time, I am sure a lot of positive changes will occur in Nigeria, the country we all claim to love so much.
