14 June 2016, 13:50

Abuja - Sen. Chukwuka Utazi, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes, has reiterated the committee’s resolve to support the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in its anti-graft war.

This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Wilson Uwujaren, Head of Media, EFCC, and made available to newsmen on Monday in Abuja.

The statement quoted Utazi as having given the assurance when members of the committee visited the acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu.

Utazi stated that one of the committee’s priorities was to ensure that the commission’s headquarters was completed and made conducive for officers to carry out their duties effectively.

“We understand that EFCC is short changed in the 2015 budget; we will ensure that the building is completed.

“We will get all you need to work better, contained in the 2016 approved budget,’’ it stated.

The chairman said that the committee would visit the zonal offices of the commission to inspect the available infrastructure and ensure that they have the required facilities to work with.

The members commended Magu for the achievements he had recorded so far in the fight against corruption and urged him to remain steadfast.

“We have been monitoring the activities of the commission with keen interest, especially in the area of fund recovery and we are very satisfied,’’ the statement added.
