EFCC chairman orders staff to declare assets

Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, on Tuesday, directed staff of the Commission to declare their assets.

Olukoyede, who gave the directive at the headquarters of the anti-graft agency, Abuja, said it was in line with civil service regulations and procedures.

The EFCC boss, while addressing senior members of staff of the commission, stressed that fighting corruption required those at the vanguard to be above board.

“All of us are going to declare our assets; from level 17, downward. I did mine, so there’s no reason for anyone to be afraid to do the same.”

“Even the Commission Secretary did, you all may also have done it in the past, but there’s a need for all of us to do it again.

“We will declare our assets, and we are going to investigate it. We must live above board by setting the pace with good examples.

“As anti-corruption fighters, our hands must be clean, so we must declare our assets,” Dele Oyewale, the acting spokesman of the agency quoted Olukoyede as saying.

He called on staff of the commission to pay more premium attention to the basis of fighting economic and financial crimes.
