Anti-Graft War: EFCC Engages Religious Leaders
The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has called on religious leaders to partner with anti-graft agency in the fight against corruption.
Magu made the call during an interactive session he had with senior Islamic Scholars and Christian leaders in Kano, on June 25, 2019.
“It is my view that all religions prohibit corruption, which is why I thought it wise to engage religious groups, because they have easy reach-out to the public,” he said.
He also told them that fighting corruption cannot be won if only the government is fighting it.
“All stakeholders need to take the ownership of the fight because fighting corruption needs multi-dimensional approach,” he said.
Magu further promised to organise a Workshop for religious leaders “where they will learn corruption fight the EFCC way”.
He further revealed that a committee for the workshop had already been initiated at the session, with Sheik Umar Sani Fagge appointed as its chairman.
The committee will aim at engaging youths from primary schools up to universities, in order to shape their minds so as to inculcate the culture of integrity in their way of life.
