Don’t Spare Anyone, Magu Charges EFCC Staff In Akwa Ibom State
The recent unscheduled visit of EFCC’s Acting Chairman to the anti-graft Zonal office in Uyo has inspired the operatives to double their effort in the war against corruption in Akwa Ibom State.
While having a discussion session with heads of departments, Mr. Ibrahim Magu charged his staff not to spare anyone in the discharge of their duties no matter whose ox is gored while urging them to be professional and deal with cases that fall within the purview of the Commission’s mandate.
Addressing the various challenges facing the young office, Magu urged staff to intensify efforts in the fight against corruption which he said is the primary purpose of establishing the Commission.
Mr. Ibrahim Magu reminded EFCC officials that their statutory responsibility is to fight corruption and it must be done against all odds.
While on the visit, Magu made a quick stopover at the office of the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police , CP. Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi Samuel, where he also met with the Assistant Commissioner of Police ACP. Shehu Umar, as well as other senior police officers including ACP OP’s Akoh Gabriel, DCP. Yekini Ayokun and DCP. SCIID Chuks Nwachukwu.
Meanwhile, Mr. Abdulkarim Chukkol, the EFCC Head of Operations of Uyo Zonal Office, had earlier revealed during a meeting with the State’s civil society organization that since the law enforcement agency commenced operation in Uyo zonal office on 8th August, 2017, there has been tremendous response in the fight against corruption judging from the vast number of petitions the Commission received from the members of the public.
Chukkol had called on Akwa Ibom people to have confidence in EFCC as the Commission is giving privilege of anonymity to cover the identity of those that bring in petitions.
