He made this known on Monday while receiving members of a civil society organization, Civil Society Coalition for Transparency and Good Governance at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
Bawa said that “EFCC belongs to all Nigerians and it is not for anybody,” he was quoted as saying via a statement issued by the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren. We realised long ago that the work of the EFCC is not something that can be done alone. Civil Society Organizations and Individuals are all stakeholders because Nigeria is the only country we have”.
It was also reported that the Vice President of CSCTGG, Nse Victor Udeh, said “if the country had functional health, education, aviation, road and other infrastructure, “We will have less to worry about,” adding that “apart from scarce resources, corruption is responsible for the failure of public infrastructures”.
Udeh however assured that, “We as civil society are offering ourselves as those who will continue to project the message of ‘say no to corruption’ in whatever form”.
