Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has called on the Nigerian Customs Service, NCS, to see itself as an important ally of the EFCC in the fight against corruption and to assist the anti-graft agency in ensuring that Nigeria’s borders are not used for illicit fund movement.

He gave the charge through the Zonal Head of the South-East Zone, Enugu, Usman Imam, on January 10, 2019 during a courtesy visit to the Customs Area Comptroller, Jammal Adediran.

He said: “The EFCC works with the Customs closely especially at the airports in the enforcement of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act (2012) therefore, I want to solicit your assistance in strengthening our operations at our entry points.”

Adediran, while commending the EFCC for its various efforts in ridding the country of economic and financial crimes, gave assurance that the Customs remains unalloyed in its support for the EFCC, especially in combating money laundering.

“We are working towards the same goal, we shall continue to improve on our existing working synergy so that the war against corruption will be won,” he said.

Usman was accompanied by the Head of ISOS, Johnson Oshodi; Head of Legal and Prosecution, Mahmud Bello, and Head, Public Affairs, Chris Oluka.

Reno Omokri has few words of advise for churchgoers, who believe every word from pastor’s mouth. The inspirational writer on Friday morning said, if ‘any pastor tells you that money is coming your way, and then asks you to shout Hallelujah if you believe has lied to you’.

According to him, this is because ‘the only way money is coming to you is if you worked, invested or traded. If all you did is shout hallelujah, money ain’t coming!’

He further said that churchgoers should verify everything a pastor said to them with the Bible, and that they need to stop believing every doctrine and statement that does not have scriptural backing.

“I am sorry to say, any pastor who tells you money is coming your way and ask you to shout hallelujah if you believe it, has lied to you. The only way money is coming to you is if you worked, invested or traded. If all you did is shout hallelujah, money ain’t coming! #RenosNuggets
