Staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have been urged by their boss, Abdulrasheed Bawa, to be hardworking and devoted to work.
Channels TV reports that Bawa said Nigerians are looking up to them for success in the fight against corruption.
Legit.ng gathered that he gave the advice on Thursday, April 8, when he visited the Ibadan zonal office of the commission.
He said the eagle is now in the hands of the EFCC, adding that the mission and vision of the commission remain the same.
Staff of the anti-graft agency were also tasked to be committed to their job and always do what is right and guard against wrongdoing.
Business Day reports that the anti-corruption czar described his visit to Ibadan as a homecoming of sorts, having previously served as head of the zone in his illustrious career.
The EFCC boss encouraged the staff to make discipline and professionalism their watchword, saying that the commission under his watch would spare no effort in redeeming the country’s battered image and set it back on the path of sustainable growth and development.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Bauchi state governor, Bala Mohammed, accused some elected and appointed public officers who are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of fraud.
It was reported that the governor said that the state government had already petitioned the EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission on the matter.
In a related report, former senator Dino Melaye and his group, the Anti Corruption Network on Wednesday, March 31, visited the headquarters of the EFCC, Abuja to submit more evidence against Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.
In a tweet made by Melaye after the submission of the petition, the activist expressed satisfaction about the investigation by the EFCC.
