Acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has insisted that there is no way he would be fighting corruption in Nigeria if he is corrupt.
He said: “if there is corruption in the EFCC expose it. If I am corrupt expose me. I can’t be corrupt and be fighting corruption.”
Ibrahim Magu, who spoke at a parley with social media personalities in Abuja today, Wednesday, said: “what we are saying is, let us do the right thing. We should insist the right thing should be done. We all have a duty to. We are all anointed by God to fight corruption.
The EFCC boss who said that the fight against corruption is succeeding, regretted that the industrial strikes by labour unions are caused by corruption.
“All these boys and girls crossing the Mediterranean to go to Europe is because of corruption.
“Every evil thing happening in Nigeria is caused by corruption, agitation, whatever, the root is corruption.
“I am telling you, the primary thing is political goodwill. If the leader is committed to fighting corruption, nothing can stop us.”
Magu is happy with the high level of support Muhammadu Buhari government has been giving to the Commission, adding: “I can assure you that we are almost there. We are succeeding. We have reached a level nobody can stop us. Nobody can stop us.” [myad]
