We are determined to wipe out corruption from Nigeia – Magu

Chidi Samuel || The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Ibraham Magu Thursday said the commission was determined to wipe out corruption from Nigeria and therefore urged members of staff of the commission to key into the vision and tackle the menace no matter who is involved.

The EFCC boss whose confirmation has twice been rejected by the Senate in what many Nigerians believe is a witch hunt, spoke at an interactive session with the staff to mark the 14th year anniversary of the commission. He encouraged the staff to be selfless in their approach to the war against corruption in the Country to enable Nigeria to return to its rightful place in the comity of nations.

Magu said, “We will continue to fight corruption whether anybody likes it or not. Because, we know that, that is the only way we can bring succor to this country. Now that we have found ourselves in this position, please, let us put heads together.”

“My door is completely opened. If something is going on wrong, please come and tell me. If you don’t want to show your face, just write a letter to me. Information is very important. I am alone, if you don’t tell me what is wrong, I would not know.

“I don’t want to know what is right, just tell us how we can correct the system itself because the system needs correction every day. People are complaining about corruption in the EFCC, which is not good. We should not allow some individuals to spoil our names here.”

Forget about your own interest. Consider the overall interest of this country and the interest of the nation,” he concluded.
