The Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has stressed the resolve of the anti-graft agency not to relent in the capacity-building of its staff, describing it as a necessity in the fight against corruption.
“We shall not relent to do the right thing especially building capacity to be able to tame the monster called corruption,” he said.
Magu made the remark on Friday, May 3, 2019, while receiving Scot Howard, Director of Bio-Metrics Division, AFIX Technologies, Inc, United States of America, USA, who was at the Jabi Headquarters of the Commission to train officers and build capacity of staff.
According to Magu, “We are on top of the game in the fight against corruption, and with the training, we are a step ahead.”
The five-day training, which targeted officers of the Forensic Department of the EFCC, was aimed at offering technologies vendor training on AFIX Tracking System.
Howard was assisted on the training by the Managing Director, Stasul Nig Ltd Olasupo Umar, who also doubles as the Country Representative of AFIX Technologies.
One of the beneficiaries of the training, Ben Agweye, explained that the training was specifically designed for the Commission’s Finger Print Experts, in order to equip them with skills on the use of the new technology.
The technology, he noted, will help update criminal information on the National Crime Data Centre.
“If a suspected criminal is being investigated in any part of the country, the moment his details passes through our centre, all his previous criminal details, if any, would be displayed,” Agweye added.
