Lagos - Former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Kanu Agabi, encouraged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to enhance efforts to eradicate such vices in the country.
He was the Guest of Honour at the just-concluded EFCC Awards Ceremony held at the agency’s academy in Abuja.
More than 300 staff members were honoured at the ceremony for serving the Commission commendably in various capacities.
Agabi said EFCC had a pivotal role to rid the country of corruption.

“Our country is ours to build, and you are in the remarkable position, having been appointed to investigate and prosecute all those who undermine that work through corruption. Our laws are not self-enforcing, they require good men and women to enforce them, and you of the EFCC are the good men and women that the nation has appointed to see to the enforcement of our laws.”
Agaba was the Attorney General when the anti-corruption agency was incepted in 2003.
