The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC),Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has said that the commission cannot succeed in the fight against crimes without the support of members of the public.
Magu who believes that corruption is the major problem holding back the development of the country, said EFCC is convinced that to overcome and defeat the menace the fight must be citizen-owned.
“The EFCC alone cannot fight corruption, it needs the support of everybody, We’re calling on every Nigerian to join us to fight corruption.” Magu said this on Monday at a meeting with stakeholders in Gombe, the Gombe State capital.
“We must come together as a people to take action to confront in every little way, these monstrous enemies who have destroyed and are destroying our country through pilfering of our commonwealth,” he said.
The EFCC boss informed of 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.
He also called on the stakeholders to ensure that only people with proven record of integrity are elected into public offices, stressing that “the doors to the country’s treasury must be firmly shut against certified looters and thieves.”
While agreeing that the fight to identify, curb and eventually reduce corruption in all its various forms is going to be a difficult task, stakeholders advocate for a holistic and all-embracing fight against corruption.
