03 March 2016, 19:46

Abuja - The Chairman of the House Committee on Interior, Jagaba Adams Jagaba, has expressed President Muhammadu Buhari’s confidence in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC’s) ability to rid the country of corruption.

Jagaba commended the commission’s acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, during the former’s courtesy visit to the EFCC base in Abuja.

“You Magu and EFCC) are able, capable and willing to join hands with him (Buhari) in the audacious task of ridding Nigeria of the monstrous scourge of corruption,” Jagaba said.

Jagaba encouraged Magu and EFCC to be unyielding in the fight against corruption in the face of criticism the agency was targeting opposition politicians.

“In the course of prosecuting this war, you will be hated by many and called unprintable names. However, you should not be dismayed because where there is a will there is a way,” said Jagaba.

“I want to urge you to continue to strive harder in order to attain higher grounds such that every segment of this nation will be keyed into the mantra of the government of President Buhari’s war against corruption.”

Magu expressed gratitude for the support the committee provided.

“We need more support and are willing to key into this and participate in this fight,” said Magu.
