- …Civil Society Organizations and Individuals are all stakeholders because Nigeria is the only country we have.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) belongs to all Nigerians and not to anybody.
This is according to the Chairman of the Anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
Bawa stated this on Monday while receiving members of a civil society organization, Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
While calling on all Nigerians to embrace the fight against corruption, he said the anti-graft agency cannot win the war alone.
“EFCC belongs to all Nigerians and it is not for anybody,” he was quoted as saying in a statement signed by the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.
“We realised long ago that the work of the EFCC is not something that can be done alone. Civil Society Organizations and Individuals are all stakeholders because Nigeria is the only country we have.”
Bawa also assured that the EFCC will partner with civil society organizations to ensure that “the mandate of the Commission and what we stand for, which is ensuring good governance, is imbibed and the country is rid of corruption.”
