The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has denied receiving donation from any governor ahead of the Anti-corruption Marathon project.
This comes after the outrage the greeted reports that the embattled Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, had gifted the commission N10m for the event.
The anti-corruption body in a post on its verified Twitter handle,@officialEFCC, said that it has not received any amount of money from individual or group to carry out the project.
“#Alert For the avoidance of doubt, no State governor or some other individual or group has donated any amount of money to the EFCC to carry out the Anti-corruption Marathon project or any other project for that matter,” the EFCC wrote on twitter.

Nigeria media was awash with reports that the Kano state government donated N10m to the organisers of the National Anti-Corruption Marathon.
Announcing the donation when he received members of the main organizing committee in Abuja, Governor Ganduje promised that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anticorruption Commission would collaborate with the organizers, as an official partner, to ensure success of the event.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes, (ICPC), Athletic Federation of Nigeria, AFN and other stakeholders organized the first National Anti-Corruption Marathon, in honour of President Muhammadu Buhari, for his fight against corruption.
It’s now a question of EFCC’s word, or Ganduje’s…
