The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has offered tips on how corruption can be defeated in Nigeria.

Ola Olukoyede, the anti-graft agency’s chairman, made this known in a statement in his Eid-El-Kabir message.

Olukoyede said the rising cases of corruption in the country are defeatable if every stakeholder in the anti-graft corridor makes concerted efforts.

He said the renewal of efforts toward curbing all forms of economic and financial crimes is necessary to kill the menace.

Olukoyede said, “It is obvious that we can attain peace, love, progress, and unity of purpose for a Nigeria free of corruption and unsavoury practices.

“Let’s keep building. Let’s keep attacking every threat to our progress. Let’s keep fighting economic and financial crimes together.”

He added that Nigerians were not inherently corrupt, and there was nothing fundamentally wrong with the nation.

The EFCC boss congratulated Muslims on the occasion of Eid-El-Kabir, saying that the lessons of the festival should drive more commitments to the anti-corruption fight.

He said, “The lessons of forbearance, sacrifice, faith, and hope in Almighty Allah, which Eid teaches, should imbue in us a fresh desire to please God and serve our nation without corrupt practices.

“We should renew our efforts towards fighting all forms of economic and financial crimes.”
