The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, said more international collaborations are needed in the quest to eliminate corruption from Nigeria and on the continent.
He said the imperativeness of having an effective international collaboration between law enforcement agencies as part of efforts to combat corruption in the country, cannot be over emphasized, considering the damages corruption has done to retard developments in Nigeria and on the continent.
Speaking at the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities, (IAACA), in Vienna, Austria, today, Magu noted that the cost of corruption was enormous and needed a broader approach to be tackled.
According the EFCC Chairman, “Corruption is acknowledged to have been an impediment to sustainable development in Africa, and the cost is so enormous that there is an urgent need for international collaboration for success to be achieved.”
