Dogara tasks EFCC on better welfare package for staff

He described the inauguration of the EFCC head office building as another milestone in his determined and collective fight against corruption.

Soyinka said, "That we have been bled dry in this nation by corrupt leadership and their agencies is nothing to reiterate".

President Buhari while inaugurating the head office which is located at Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) said his administration never intends and is not engaged in witch-hunting in its fight against corruption.

"It has become the norm".

When he got to the exhibition stand, he was shown some recovered loot and the president held a wad of dollars to the amazement of many, including Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the commission.

What I see here is not only a structure of concrete and metal, I see in this edifice, the resolve of Nigerians to fight corruption. We must CHANGE our ways of handling public trust.

The struggling retailer is also re-employing Mark Newton-Jones as chief executive, just a month after he left the firm. Mothercare has confirmed it is closing 50 stores as part of a rescue plan.

The president noted that a number of nations had signified interest to help Nigeria tighten its laws and enter into agreements with the country to repatriate not only stolen funds but to make the culprits face due process of law.

"And so, I spoke to Magu and I said I want to see where the presidential wing is". And in 16 years that the PDP governed Nigeria, not one of the chairmen of the EFCC ever wore a lapel pin promoting the reelection of the PDP President that appointed him. So emphasis must now be moved to those wonderful men and women who are sacrificing so much in order to ensure the war is sustained and won.

I want to thank all of you for coming, and I pray that God bless the President, bless you all and bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. When you have an angel banished to hell, he's now a demon, and demons can not lead this fight.

Chief Justice of Nigeria Justice Walter Onnoghen, said the summit would enable leaders of anti-corruption agencies to "put heads together in an attempt to better understand the phenomenon of corruption and the canckerworm that has eaten deep into the fabrics of our country".

The commissioning was attended by both national and global dignitaries with the intention to curb corruption in the country which has bedevilled the country.

'The person also stated that Nigeria leads the world in criminal enterprise, In fact, that in the university ... you can study and major in credit card fraud.

President Buhari further appealed to Nigerians to support regulatory agencies like Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, adding that fighting corruption is everyone's concern. He said, this year alone, the EFCC had secured 89 convictions and "for the fi rst time in Nigeria", a senior advocate was convicted of corruption.
