We cannot allow corruption destroy Nigeria any further – EFCC

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reiterated its resolve not to allow corruption to continue to destroy the socioeconomic fabric of Nigeria.

It therefore called on the people to unite to ensure that corruption, which it described as a hydra-headed monster, is stamped out of the country.

Speaking during a road walk in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, to mark the 2023 International Anti-Corruption Day with the theme, “UNCAC @20: Uniting the World Against Corruption,” the Zonal Commander of EFCC, ACE-1 Bawa Hamidu Saidu, noted that if corruption would be conquered, the people should unite, enhance transparency, and ensure that institutions are strengthened.

According to him: “We must stand together, enhance transparency, and strengthen our institutions if this threat called corruption must be countered. We cannot allow corruption to destroy this country any further. United we stand as a people against corruption. United we defeat corruption! And united, we take our rightful place.”

The zonal commander also noted that in uniting the World Against Corruption, the zone would work without allowing interference and ensure that corrupt persons are called out irrespective of social standing.

“In Nigeria today, corruption steers us in the face, no matter the direction we turn. It undermines every aspect of our development and environmental sustainability and negatively affects the most vulnerable in society.

“We are ready to call out corrupt persons or organisations, whether private or public, without minding whose ox is gourd. We must collectively agree to combat corruption and do this without any form of interference or senseless adherence to religion, political party, race, or creed. Imagine a world that is truly united against corruption,” Saidu said.
