EFCC Vows Stern Action Against Public Fund Thieves 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) pledges to take strict action against government officials involved in embezzling public funds. 

EFCC Chairman Ola Olukoyede made these remarks on Monday at the inaugural President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua International Leadership Conference and Awards held in Abuja, hosted by the Global Initiative for Leadership Success. 

He emphasized that the commission remained steadfast in upholding the law and fulfilling its duties. 

Olukoyede, represented by Director of Public Affairs Wilson Uwujaren, urged future generations to adopt the values of the late President Yar’Adua, highlighting the significance of his enduring legacy. 

He said, “If anybody steals public funds, you won’t get away with it. All the crimes we are set out to fight are based on integrity deficit. Integrity deficit means absence of integrity.”
