The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission-EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, says all government agencies tasked to fight corruption must work in greater synergy for the benefit of all Nigerians.
Speaking at an anti-corruption summit hosted by the Commission in Abuja with the theme ‘Building an Anti-Corruption Consensus in an Inter-Agency Environment’, Magu tasked all stakeholders on collaboration, saying the summit was necessary as Nigeria was at critical phase in its evolution as a nation having identified corruption as the greatest challenge undermining its development.
While reaffirming the preparedness of the EFCC under his watch to lead the war against graft without fear or favour Magu urged participants to be dispassionate in their deliberations and key into the vision of President Muhammadu Buhari which is to “kill corruption before it kills Nigeria”.
Speaking at the event, Chairman, House Committee on Anti-Corruption, Kayode Oladele, said that the lower and upper chambers have agreed to promote the issue of public participation in the fight against corruption.
