The Executive Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ola Olukoyede, has vowed that the commission would give sleepless nights to those looting the nation’s treasury.

He said that looters of public funds, drainers of resources and other corrupt elements in Nigeria would be tackled to make room for growth and development across the country.

Olukoyede stated this on Saturday, December 9, in Abuja during a Road Walk held in commemoration of the 2023 International Anti-Corruption Day.

Olukoyede pointed out that the EFCC under his watch would not allow resources meant for economic growth and the greater good of Nigerians to be cornered by looters and that every stolen fund would be recovered to develop social systems in the country.

“We are going to give sleepless nights to those stealing our money. We are going to remove opportunities for corruption. We are going to plug the loopholes. We are in the era of a new budget. We have sent words to all the gatekeepers of our finances in Nigeria that we are going to work with them. Every money that is released, we are going to track them,” he said.

He decried the hurtful effects of corruption on Nigerians, promising that the anti-corruption mandate of the EFCC is being refocused to stimulate growth and development in all the sectors of the economy.

“We are refocusing the anti-corruption mandate of the EFCC. We will fight corruption to stimulate growth and development and remove all the threats to the progress of the nation. We are tired of corruption in Nigeria. Our youths must have job opportunities,” he said.
