Head, Ghana Anti-corruption Agency Visits EFCC Academy
The Executive Director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) Ghana, Mr K. K. Amoah, today, November 30, 2017, paid a working visit to the Commandant, EFCC Academy Karu, Abuja.
Amoah said the visit was informed by the need for the EOCO to strengthen its strategy and continually exchange ideas with the EFCC. He further stated that the visit was in furtherance of his interaction with the EFCC Ag. Chairman whom he had met at meetings in different international fora. The Ghanaian anti-graft Chief said he had been conducted round the different departments of the EFCC to see how the Commission works.
In response to some of Amoah’s questions, regarding duration of trainings for operatives of the Commission, the Ag. Commandant EFCC Academy, Dr. David Wodi Tukura, said operatives currently undergo an intensified training to give them “the courage of a soldier and the cleverness of a lawyer, we used to have about three to six months of training before, but the training has now been intensified. It is now up to a year.”
Tukura said that management decision to intensify by extending the training duration was borne out of the realization that equipping somebody with investigation technique without immersing him/her in the culture of law enforcement (regimentation and discipline), which is the success of any law enforcement agent creates a deficit which impart negatively on the job.
Law enforcement officers must have resilience, courage, staying power, and conviction. These are the key ingredients that will make the law enforcement officer gain grounds in his duty.
Amoah who had earlier visited the EFCC head office for an interraction with the acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, said he had been greatly enriched by the visit to the EFCC Academy.
He expressed appreciation to the Commandant for the reception and enlightenment. Amoah was accompanied on the visit by a colleague, Mr. Nana Boalye Amponsah.
