President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged not to interfere with the operations of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as it strives to uncover and prosecute corrupt public officials.
The president stated this at the graduation of 328 cadets of the detective superintendent course 8 of the EFCC, on Saturday, in Kaduna state.
Buhari, who was represented by Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), congratulated the cadets and urged them to contribute their quota to his anticorruption campaign.
He assured that his administration would improve their working condition to enhance their efficiency, saying the fight against corruption remains a cardinal objective of his government.
Speaking on the progress made in the anti-corruption war in the last four years, Buhari said the treasury single account and whistleblower initiatives have helped in blocking financial leakages in the country.
The president commended the anti-graft agency for being part of the success story, urging them to continue with the good work in order to have a well-developed country.
On his part, Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the EFCC, said Nigerians have a responsibility of fighting against corruption, so as to have a well-developed nation.
