EFCC urged to intensify efforts in combatting corruption

The Association of Civil Society and Public Interest Organisation in Nigeria (CCSPION) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to intensify its efforts in investigating and arresting individuals involved in corrupt practices in the country.

The group stressed that tackling corruption requires a comprehensive approach that includes targeting both the perpetrators and those who facilitate corrupt practices.

CCSPIONNational Coordinator Abraham Ekokotu made the call at a press briefing, on Sunday in Abuja.

Ekokotu expressed the organisation’s concern about some governors documents bearing multiple pseudo names, causing confusion among the people.

Recall that the past Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, in July arrested by the Department of State Service (DSS), shortly after President Bola Tinubu suspended him from office.

Meanwhile,Ekokotu urged the EFCC to as a matter of urgency expose and hold accountable those individuals who aided and abetted any alleged corrupt practices of former CBN governor.

He said: “We call on the EFCC to remain steadfast in its fight against corruption in Nigeria and proceed to deal with any person who loots or launders, aids or abets another person to launder or loot from the public treasury so as to recover the looted funds make him face music.”
