Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) acting chairman Ibrahim Magu was denied confirmation as the chairman of the anti-graft agency at the National Assembly today.
Reacting to the development, Magu said he was not deterred and will continue “fighting against corruption” even in his acting capacity as EFCC boss.
“My priority is to fight corruption. My confirmation has not changed anything. We have always been on duty I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation.
“The greatest violation against human right is crime against the society and the humanity but everybody has a duty and responsibility to fight corruption and I also has a responsibility. I assure you that we will fight to finish.
“We will never be deterred because what we are doing is trying to investigate what has gone before and protect the future of our children and our future generation. So, if we don’t work today and fight against corruption, the future is not guaranteed, the future of our children is not guaranteed.
“So, we must wake up, where ever you find yourself, fight corruption. Anytime you discover that I am corrupt, expose me.”
