Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has said Nigeria will become better if corruption is reduced to the nearest minimum.
Magu said this on Wednesday during his screening by the Senate.
He said 90% of the current recession was caused by corrupt practices.
When asked by Senator Isah Misau why the former Central Bank Governor has not been invited over the alleged corrupt practices by ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, Magu said the EFCC has invited everyone who needs to be questioned.
While speaking on the DSS report on him, Magu said he decided to stay in the house bought for him in order to avoid late night movement.
The EFCC boss also said he could not tell how much the EFCC has recovered since he took over.
He also denied any external involvement of the Presidency in the fight against corruption.
He added that the EFCC was still fine tuning the Whistle blowers act which he said has worked tremendously.
