The Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has advised Nigerians to embrace the fight against corruption because the Commission cannot win the war alone.

Bawa said this when he received members of a civil society organization, Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance, at the Commission’s headquarters, Abuja on Monday, April 19, 2021.

According to the EFCC boss, “EFCC belongs to all Nigerians and it is not for anybody.

“We realized long ago that the work of the EFCC is not something that can be done alone. Civil Society Organizations and Individuals are all stakeholders because Nigeria is the only country we have.”

Bawa gave the assurance that the EFCC will partner with civil society organizations to ensure that “the mandate of the Commission and what we stand for, which is ensuring good governance, is imbibed and the country is rid of corruption.”

On his own part, the Vice President of CSCTGG, Nse Victor Udeh, lamented the negative impact of corruption on the country.

He said if the country had functional health, education, aviation, road and other infrastructure, “we will have less to worry about.”

He added that, apart from scarce resources, corruption is responsible for the failure of public infrastructures.

“We as civil society are offering ourselves as those who will continue to project the message of ‘say no to corruption’ in whatever form”, he assured.
