Magu Solicits Support for Anti-graft War


The Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has charged professional bodies in the country to join hands with the Commission in the fight against corruption and economic crimes. Magu made this call while speaking at a workshop in Abuja on the “Role of Professionals in the Fight Against Corruption”. He said:  “Instead of conniving with people to launder the proceeds of corruption, I beg you to join hands with the EFCC to fight corruption”.

Many professionals celebrate criminality by doing a lot to foster corruption, which adds more to money laundering. I don’t intend to criticise the work of professionals, but to solicit their support in order to make Nigeria better for the younger generation”. He also charged Bureau de Change and financial institutions to desist from being used as conduit pipes to launder money. According to him,” BDCs move billions of naira in a day and there is no proper documentation of money laundered.  I appeal to the BDCs to stop that, as we will begin to prosecute Bureau de Change operators to serve as deterrent.
