How corruption 'fought' me out of office

Saraki just promised Magu support in corruption war

The Nobel laureates revealed that he recently visited the new head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission which is set to be inaugurated this week.

The president, however, admitted that anti-corruption war is not easy to fight because it affects different branches of national lives.

Scotland said President Muhammadu Buhari was very clear on the repatriation of the funds, saying that it is a matter of pride to the Commonwealth to have been able to assist Nigeria in getting her money back. "We must insist that recovered stolen assets be returned to countries of origin, without any preconditions in line with article 51 UNCAC".

He said: "Since 2015, we have made significant progress in the fight against corruption".

"Until we make sure that some of our leaders pass through those doors, this struggle against corruption in this country will not be won".

"I took the trouble to visit the headquarters of the EFCC, I wanted to see what will be the mode of hospitality for some of our leaders who sooner or late will pass through the doors of that lovely building not far from here", he said.

The literary doyen said he was at the new office building of the anti-corruption agency at the weekend, "to see what will he the modest hospitality" for suspects.

The president expressed the hope that the National Assembly, the Judiciary and other critical stakeholders would continue to collaborate with the Executive to bring corrupt people to book.

'Big 6' pulling further clear in top-heavy Premier League
And City manager Pep Guardiola believes it will be quite some time before any team can overtake their points record. The Ivory Coast man looked close to tears as the fans chanted his name.

He particularly called on the Legislature to add more verve to the determination of government to rid the nation of the brazen corruption witnessed in recent years, through reviewing archaic constitutional provisions and proactive passage of new legislation.

"It has become the norm".

"We need to move to a better place because we're occupying rented quarters".

The goal of this Administration is to ensure the protection of public trust, and the anti-corruption war is at its centre.

He therefore appealed to Nigerians to support regulatory agencies like EFCC, because fighting corruption was everyone's concern.

We are committed to working with our foreign friends to stop the inflow of stolen funds from Nigeria into their countries and recovering what is there already.

Recall that sometime previous year, the speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, gave an assurance that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission will get the funds needed in the 2017 budget to complete its head office by December.
