“We want to be sure that there is transparency, accountability and judicious use of the money allocated to Internally Displaced Persons in Maiduguri and elsewhere,” said Magu.
“What we are doing is gathering intelligence but the culprits behind the sufferings in the IDP camps will be invited sooner or later by the EFCC,”
He meanwhile gave indications of plans to mobilize women to buy into the fight against corruption.
“I will bring in civil societies and women groups in Borno state in the fight against corruption and we will equally organize a workshop for them similar to the one we did for children in Abuja, so as to educate them on the ills of corruption, ” Magu stated.
