    Magu tells looters what to do after returning stolen money




    Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, on Wednesday called on repentant looters to join the fight against corruption.

    He made this call at a parley with members of labour unions, civil society organisations, and social media personalities at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.

    In the statement, spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said the EFCC boss harped on the need for a united front in the anti-corruption crusade.

    He said, “We are calling on every Nigerian to join us; you can even return loot, face consequences then join us to fight corruption.

    “We have reached a level where nobody can stop us in the fight against corruption.

    “But we all must realise that we are all stakeholders, and this fight is for the future generation.

    “The EFCC alone cannot fight and defeat corruption; the battle requires the support of everybody to be won.

    “All stakeholders must step up the battle; you are not doing it for yourself.

    “You are doing it for the future of the country and the future generation in order to bring back the change that we really crave for.

    “Let us do the right thing and insist on it because change begins with you and me.

    “From our households to our kids, places of work and beyond, by also living a life of integrity,” he stressed.

    Speaking earlier, Ayuba Wabba, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) lauded the anti-graft agency leadership for its steadfastness in the fight against corruption.

    Wabba, however, noted that the efforts could only be successful if the relevant laws were fully implemented.

    “All Nigerians must play their roles, because EFCC can only do its best, but we must support the agency.

    “The law should also take its course, policies should be strengthened, and punishment must be meted out in good time,” he said.
