The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said that corruption remains the biggest challenge in Nigeria and not leadership.
Theresa Nwosu, the commission’s head of Uyo Zonal Office, said this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday 4th January, 2020.
She explained that the commission had put all hands on deck to ensure the eradication of corruption in order for Nigeria to succeed.
She said, “You heard President Buhari sometimes ago when he said that if we don’t kill corruption, it will kill the nation, that is how bad it is.
Every citizen of Nigeria knows that the problem we have in Nigeria today is corruption and whether this corruption wants to die or not, we will it’s being eradicated from our country.
Even though, many still see the activities of the commission as a witch-hunt, the big question is if you have classified Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as witch-hunters, why do you still make yourself a witch for EFCC to hunt?
“There is no innocent person that has been convicted, even though EFCC is not the judiciary that do the convictions.
It is important to state that every Nigerian must get involved if we must succeed in killing this hydra headed monster as it has permeated our lives.”
