The EFCC Has Promised to Inspect Every Former Governor Involved in Corruption Cases

Posted by

At the opening of a one-day EFCC Civil Society Organizations engagement in Sokoto on Thursday, November 30, the commission’s zonal commander, ACE Aliyu Yunusa, stated that every Nigerian is subject to the commission’s investigation into corruption to liberate the country.

What did he say?

“The success of our mission depends on the active participation of all Nigerians, but especially on civil society organizations (CSOs), and we are committed to fulfilling this mission with their help. Our primary mandate is unchanged.

“For Nigeria to be financially stable, we are counting on the country’s public and organized bodies to combat corruption and other forms of economic crime.”

People from Sokoto, Kebbi, and Zamfara states came together for the one-day event.

Also taking advantage of the situation, Yunusa and his deputy, Adesola Amusan, set the record straight on the falsehood that the commission does not look into former governors.

“Where a petition is received, our investigation does not exclude any past governor or anyone else,” he declared.

The zonal commander reaffirmed the agency’s determination to confront the obstacles directly after naming technology, public disapproval, religion, tribal and ethnic tensions, and data-free work as significant hurdles to the agency’s operations.

Yunusa revealed that the commission was quickly tuned into the reality of driving active coordination with other constitutional organs to battle corruption, despite decrying the difficulty of low staff.

Despite the Zonal Commander’s claim that the commission seldom used the plea bargain option, he promised that the whistleblower policy was still in place and helped the commission execute its tasks effectively.

He made a note of:

“And allow me to clarify that the government receives and deposits into the recovery account with the CBN any funds recovered by the commission, including those recovered through forfeiture.”

Aisha Muhammad, a senior official of the commission responsible for enlightenment and information, echoed her sentiment, urging her fellow Nigerians to show patriotism so that the country can finally realize her vision of a nation free of corruption.

According to Muhammad, civil society organizations (CSOs) play a crucial role in the fight against corruption because of their widespread presence at the grassroots level, which the commission can use to fulfill its mandate.

She stated that the commission had previously advocated for and provided funding for the establishment of anti-corruption clubs at various schools so that the message could be conveyed and the values instilled in the next generation.

Our doors are open, and we are willing to collaborate responsively to promote youth programs on anti-corruption,” she declared.
