Ibrahim Magu, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has appealed to journalists to monitor the activities of the EFCC with a view to providing useful suggestions on how to correct its mistakes and shortcomings.

Magu said this on Thursday when he paid a courtesy visit to the NUJ Press Centre in Kano.

He also solicited the support of journalists in the commission’s anti-graft war.

“I always welcome useful criticisms, so I want you to monitor us and to constructively criticise and analyse how we operate,” he said.


“What we are doing is for Nigeria and not for our personal interest, hence our decision as stakeholders to seek for your support.

“We appreciate your support but we want you to give us more support by educating people, especially at the grassroots on the ills of corruption.”

Magu said the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to the fight against corruption.


“We now have the appropriate political will to fight corruption. We can only blame ourselves if we fail to perform,” he said.

Aduljalal Haruna, chairman of the NUJ in Kano, and Edwin Olufu, chairman of the Correspondent Chapel, expressed the readiness of journalists in the state to support the commission to achieve its desired objective.
