The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has urged Nigerians to accept the fight against corruption since the Commission cannot win the battle alone.
Bawa disclosed this when he met with members of a civil society organization, Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance, at the head office of EFCC, Abuja on Monday, April 19, 2021.
As indicated by Bawa, “EFCC belongs to all Nigerians and it is not for anybody.
“We realized long ago that the work of the EFCC is not something that can be done alone. Civil Society Organizations and Individuals are all stakeholders because Nigeria is the only country we have.”
Bawa assured that the EFCC will collaborate with civil society organizations to guarantee that “the mandate of the Commission and what we stand for, which is ensuring good governance, is imbibed and the country is rid of corruption.”
Meanwhile, the Vice President of Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance, Nse Victor Udeh, lamented the adverse influence of corruption on the nation.
He stated that if the nation had functional health, education, aviation, road and other infrastructure, “We will have less to worry about.”
He further said that aside from limited resources, corruption is accountable for the failure of public infrastructures.
“We as civil society are offering ourselves as those who will continue to project the message of ‘say no to corruption’ in whatever form”, he guaranteed.
Similarly, on the delegation were the National President, Comrade Success Uko, Anthony Olah and Bilkisu Abubakar.
