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 dropped few words that will help while making decisions. The former spokesperson to former President, Goodluck Jonathan sounded against taking decisions that last permanently over temporary emotions.

They are like your fingernails. Sometimes they can scratch you, but you don’t permanently remove them because of that temporary inconvenience.
