Written by on March 26, 2022

President Muhammadu Buhari admonished the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to avoid being used for partisan politics, or get dragged into personal disputes, urging for a focus on serving the nation to entrench good governance.

The President, who spoke at the Unveiling of the EFCC Standard Operating Procedures, Policies, and Manuals, at the State House, advised leaders and all operatives of the commission to resist the temptation of being influenced by political actors for personal gains or to score political points.

The President noted the excellent performance of the leadership of the EFCC in securing 2,220 convictions within one year and recovering over 152 billion naira and 385 million dollars.

President Buhari also commended the EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, for efforts to further institutionalize the commission by developing twenty-six Standard Operating Procedures and twenty-five Policies and Manuals for the Departments, Units, and Staff of the Commission, while appreciating the support of the Board, Management and Staff.
