"No One Will Be Untouchable Or Treated As A Sacred Cow"- EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu.
Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says no one will be “untouchable” as the agency intensifies its anti-corruption crusade.
According to a statement issued by Wilson Uwujaren on Thursday, Magu said this at the 20th anniversary public lecture and award ceremony of the Finance Correspondents Association of Nigeria (FICAN) which was held at the Top Rank Hotel, Utako, Abuja.
We are winning the war against corruption, because the age of impunity is over, and never again would anyone be treated as sacred cow.
Uwujaren said, in his paper entitled, ‘Corruption and National Development: Issues, Challenges and Solutions’, Magu, who was represented by Tony Orilade, acting head, EFCC public interface unit, identified corruption as the main reason why Nigeria has been unable to fully reach its potential as the giant of Africa.
We are blessed with both human and mineral resources. But why have we been unable to explore and exploit our potentials to the fullest? Your answer is as good as mine – corruption.
