Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, on Wednesday said repentant looters were free to join the fight against corruption.
“We are calling on every Nigerian to join us; you can even return loot, face consequences then join us to fight corruption,” Magu was quoted as saying.
He spoke at a parley with members of labour unions, civil society organisations, and social media personalities at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
In a statement by the spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, harped on the need for a united front in the anti-corruption crusade.
“We have reached a level where nobody can stop us in the fight against corruption.
“But we all must realise that we are all stakeholders, and this fight is for the future generation,” he said.
“The EFCC alone cannot fight and defeat corruption; the battle requires the support of everybody to be won.
“All stakeholders must step up the battle; you are not doing it for yourself.
“You are doing it for the future of the country and the future generation in order to bring back the change that we really crave for,” he added.
