2 min read

Ace broadcaster and former Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, Danladi Bako, on Wednesday July 1, 2020 commended the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, for his fighting spirit and unwavering boldness in plying his job, adding that EFCC under his leadership is “effective, functional, and working”.

Bako gave the commendation at the EFCC Headquarters while on a Courtesy Visit  to the Commission.
The ace broadcaster who went down memory lane to the formative years of the EFCC, said that,  in the last five years, the leadership of Magu has been great and unprecedented in asset recovery, prosecution and conviction of very highly exposed persons in the country, who were, hitherto untouchable.

He scored the leadership style of Magu high, stressing that the EFCC boss  has become a role model to Nigerian youths and father-figure in terms of transparency, integrity and diligence. Bako added that with the doggedness of Magu ,the  Nigeria project can work again and better.

“A lot of people will like to bring you down, nobody goes to corpses because they are corpses, people will like to misrepresent,  criticise and harass you because of great work you are doing”, he said.

Bako frowned at media attacks on Magu and called for responsible reportage of the activities of the EFCC.

 In his response, Magu reiterated his  commitment and determination to remain focused  in spite of campaign of calumny and distraction,  promising to cripple corruption in the interest of  the future of every Nigerian. Magu expressed delight with the visit of the ace broadcaster,  adding that his visit has added credence to the integrity and transparency of  the EFCC activities.

He also noted that the fight against corruption was gradually changing people’s attitude for better, stressing that the train against graft has moved on and nothing can stop it.

“The corrupt are fighting back with dedicated media platforms but we will not give up. The anti-graft train is moving and nothing can stop it”, he said.
