The Pioneer Chairman of the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu takes a swipe at the Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu
Speaking of the ongoing anti-corruption war, Ribadu the EFCC is losing the war against corruption “because the drivers of the anti-corruption vehicle are more interested in drama and media hype than the actual national goal.”
This is certainly not the EFCC of my dream,” Ribadu said, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari must have been disappointed in the manner at which the anti-graft war is being fought.
His words: “Anti-graft war is not all about media frenzy but genuine commitment to the total eradication of corruption from the system.
I am sorry to say that we are losing the war against corruption because the drivers of the anti-corruption vehicle are more interested in drama and media hype than the actual national goal.
It is preposterous to unlawfully incarcerate alleged corrupt elements for months just to find evidence against them, and when you finally charge them to court, you fail to present evidence but start begging judges to help the president fight corruption as if we are in the Banana Republic.
“This is certainly not the EFCC of my dream, and I am very sure that this is not what President Muhammadu Buhari meant when he promised to fight corruption during the electioneering.”
