World Anti-Corruption Day: We should come together and be united against corruption-Ibrahim Magu

The Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has said corruption is the main reason the nation is yet to fully realize its potential.

Speaking at the commemoration of this year’s World Anti-Corruption Day, Magu said: “You will all agree with me that it promotes impunity in the conduct of public affairs. It is the reason the nation is yet to fully realize its potential as the effects of corruption permeate every sector. It is no longer news that corruption is at the mid-riff of our developmental growth as a nation. That is why at the EFCC, we don’t pretend to have the monopoly of knowledge of how the fight can be fought and won. We can’t do it alone. We are convinced that corruption can only be tackled when there is a meeting of minds and common resolve by all to fight the malaise.”

“With the rare assemblage of stakeholders present here today, it is essential that I emphasise our commitment to the fight against corruption and further call on you all to continue to support us as we forge ahead as a nation. The message for this year is well themed and timed. We must all have Zero tolerance for corruption.”
