It was plaudits all the way for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, October 22, 2019 in Abuja as the yearly workshop on financial and economic crimes investigation and prosecution for judicial officers got underway at the National Judicial Institute, Jabi.
Ahmed Lawan, President of the Senate, who declared the workshop opened, commended the EFCC for its consistency in carrying out its mandate. According to him, all the government and National Assembly can do in the light of the glistering performance of the EFCC was to support it in order for the Commission to discharge its mandate more effectively. “The 9th Senate and indeed the National Assembly as presently constituted are to support the anti- corruption agencies to the best of its abilities to enable us get rid of the menace of corruption. It is a fight that should be fought by all,” Lawan said.
The Senate President commended the wisdom behind the workshop which he described as a unique example of collaboration among the three arms of government in solving a collective national challenge, which should be replicated in all sectors. He emphasized the need for the EFCC and the judiciary to stand firm in the fight against corruption and tasked judges and justices to be above board as demanded by their profession
