Lagos – The Coalition of Civil Society Groups in Nigeria (CCOSGIN) has pledged its commitment to complement the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC’s) objective of tackling corruption.
It has since endorsed Ibrahim Lamorde’s chairmanship of the commission.
CCOSGIN Chairman, Iso Bassey Edim, said the endorsement followed Lamorde’s enviable record in fighting corruption.
“In consideration of your (Larmode) track records of fighting crimes in Nigeria and even across the world, we hereby pass a vote of confidence in you,” said Edim, who led a delegation from his organisation to the EFCC Chairman’s offices in Abuja.
He led some officials of the 47 civil society and liberty groups to the group.

Edim pledged the organisation’s commitment in complementing EFCC’s objective of tackling corruption.
“With humility and respect, we also wish to partner with the EFCC for easy and more formidable operations of the organisation’s objective as a watch dog.
"We hereby pledge our unalloyed commitment to work with your Commission to ensure that Nigeria is rid of corruption,” said Edim.
Lamorde on his part welcomed the partnerships with civil society organisations in the fight against corruption.
He said the success so far recorded by the Commission in the war against corruption would not have been possible without the active support of the civil society groups.
“The Commission’s doors are open to meaningful contributions from individuals and organisations with good intentions in the efforts to stamp out economic and financial crimes from the Nigerian society,” said Lamorde.
