The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, has charged all staff of the Commission to brace up for fresh and greater challenges in the arduous task of combating corruption.
He gave the charge at the formal handover ceremony held at the EFCC headquarters, Abuja, which saw him, take over from him Ibrahim Lamorde, as chairman of the agency.
Asserting his readiness to succeed in running the EFCC, Magu, who like Lamorde is a pioneer staff of the agency, expressed absolute commitment to executing the war against corruption.
While paying tribute to the founding fathers of the agency, he said, “I want to state our resolve not to falter on the well-established tradition of patriotism, dedication, courage and fearlessness, and we will take this responsibility with utmost seriousness that it deserves.”
He promised to “ginger up the anti-corruption campaign”, noting that there was no better time to do so than now.
Corruption, according to Magu, cannot co-exist with any meaningful development, as such, must be fought to a standstill.
