Okon'go, in appreciating EFCC for its doggedness to the fight against corruption both locally and internationally, hoped that, the relationship between the two countries would be further entrenched.

Meanwhile, Chairman of Ibrahim Lamorde, has reiterated the need to strengthen the existing collaboration among African countries in fighting the menace of corruption.

"The reason Africa is not developed is because of corruption, as it drags us back. Therefore we, as anti-graft agencies and indeed all Africans, need to come together to fight the monster," said Lamorde. - CAJ News
