Magu Urges Media To Support Fight Against Corruption
Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has urged media practitioners in the country to support the fight against corruption.
The anti-corruption boss said this at the 20th Anniversary Public Lecture and Award Ceremony of the Finance Correspondents Association of Nigeria, FICAN, which held at Top Rank Hotel, Utako, Abuja.
“As far as we are striving to fight corruption to a standstill in Nigeria, sadly, it is fighting back, really hard,” Magu said, stressing that the fight had never been so savage.
“This is why I am using this platform and opportunity to call on you all, members of the Fourth Estate of the Realm, to support the fight against corruption,” Magu said, noting that the agency remained unrelenting “in ensuring that we rigorously pursue our mandate of ridding Nigeria of all forms of economic and financial crimes”.
He further urged the members of the Press to explore the power of the pen, “to push for reforms in the judiciary, and society at large, by exposing corrupt elements”.
