Everyone Should Be Involved in Fight Against Corruption

Acting Chairman, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has said that the fight against corruption is not a personal war but a collective one which everyone must be involved in.
He said it was becoming tougher, urging all Nigerians, including children, to use every weapon at their disposal to fight it.
Magu said this in Lagos on Friday during the sensitisation forum on the plan to launch “EFCC-Creative Youth Initiative Against Corruption; Corruption Busters”.
He said it was not a personal war and therefore called on Nigerians, including those in Diaspora to join hands in the fight, stressing that the commission was already mobilising Nigerians outside the country for support.
“The fight against corruption is becoming tougher. We cannot fight it alone. We want to mobilise everyone in the fight; the more people in the fight, the better.
“I am determined in the fight against corruption. I urge other Nigerians not to get exhausted. Don’t expect anyone to thank you for fighting corruption. It is a thankless job.
“Whatever weapons you have, use it against corruption. Use your strategic thinking; the fight must go on with or without me, it is not a personal thing.
“The press has a lot to do in this fight. If they do more, the battle would be half solved,” Magu said.
