EFCC commends Gov. Wike of Rivers on stance on corruption

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has commended Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, for openly declaring that no corrupt official would be part of his administration in the State.
This is as the commission says it is investigating some staff of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and would soon publish their names.
Port Harcourt Zonal Head of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who disclosed this to newsmen in Port Harcourt said more reports of corruption allegation against the interventionist agency are being turned in on a daily basis.
“I don’t have the statistics now, but you are all aware that NDDC is here in Port Harcourt and the EFCC has an office here. So we have several cases of that nature and many more that we are investigating.
“We are working and very soon Nigerians will know about the extent of our work here,” the Port Harcourt Zonal Head of EFCC said.
He further said the commission needs more Nigerians to join in the fight against corruption, saying Governor Wike’s stance that his administration will not condone corruption is worthy of commendation.
“Corruption is the bane of development in this country. So it is encouraging that Rivers State Governor and the Government of Rivers State in general is aligning to the fact that we must do something about corruption.
“We are also happy to the fact that he (Wike) mentioned it publicly that no member of the executive council that is corrupt will have a place in his own cabinet, which is a welcome development,” Bawa said.
He explained that such declaration by the Governor was part of the preventive measures that the anti-graft agency was looking out for to ensure that corrupt persons do not find their way into public offices.
“It is part of the preventive and deterrent measures that we are looking at so that no corrupt person in this country holds any public office,” Bawa stated.
