The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has blamed the corrupt tendencies of Nigerian leaders as the cause of the current economic crisis in the country.
Magu made the statement during his visit to the naval headquarters in Abuja on Thursday, December 1.
According to Punch, the EFCC boss said except Nigerians resolve collectively to abhor corruption in all forms, there would be no future for the youths.
He said the continuous misappropriation that federal, state and local government allocations has led resulted in underdevelopment in the country.
“If 50 per cent of the allocations at the three tiers of governments are judiciously put to use, we would not be where we are in terms of underdevelopment and infrastructural decay,” Magu explained.
He said his visit to the naval headquarters was in furtherance of the inter-agency collaboration between the EFCC and other government agencies.
Meanwhile, a former chairman of the EFCC, Nuhu Ribadu has named some Nigerians he said did all they could to frustrate the nation’s fight against corruption.
Ribadu made the disclosure on Thursday, December 1, when he presented the lead paper at the 2016 annual lecture organised by the Law Chambers of Joe Kyari Gadzama in Abuja, Premium Times reports.
According to Ribadu, foremost lawyer, Ben Nwabueze, former attorney general and minister of justice, Michael Aondoakaa, and his successor at the EFCC, Farida Waziri undermined the country’s efforts to fight against the cancer of corruption.
