EFCC Talks Tough as 2019 Election Campaigns Begin

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu, has cautioned politicians against misuse of public funds for the forthcoming general elections.

Magu gave the warning in a statement signed by the commission’s Acting Head, Media and Publicity Mr Tony Orilade in Abuja on Wednesday.

The statement quoted Magu as giving the warning at a one-day retreat for 36 state governors and key election stakeholders.

Represented by the commission’s secretary Mr Olanipekun Olukoyede, Magu said that as another election cycle approached, the EFCC would not fold its hands and watch the nation’s commonwealth squandered by corrupt politicians.

The retreat, which has as its theme as “Institutionalising Transparency, Accountability, And Anti-Corruption Issues in the Electoral Process in Nigeria”, was organised by the Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL).
