Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has promoted more than 300 officers to enhance morale within its ranks.
Bolaji Salami, Director, Organisational Support at EFCC, confirmed the elevation of the 318 officers.
The promotions, which chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Lamorde, has approved, follows the recent promotion examination the Public Service Institute of Nigeria conducted.
The promotion exercise which affected a number of officers in the senior and junior cadres who had stagnated on certain grade levels for years, comes a few months after some officers that were not well placed at the point on entry were re-graded.
Salami said congratulated all successful candidates and reiterated management belief that the promotion will spur them ti achieving the Commission's mandate.
EFCC is a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud (419 fraud) and money laundering.
The EFCC was established in 2003, partially in response to pressure from the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF), which named Nigeria as one of 23 countries non-cooperative in the international community's efforts to fight money laundering.
