The Truth About The Recovered Loot – Ribadu
Former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, has said that there is no way anybody can steal money recovered by the agency.
According to Ribadu, it is the statutory responsibility of a country’s president to fight corruption from all angles.
Speaking on Monday in Abuja during the annual conference of the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM), he said: “Nobody else, it is not the duty of any governor or any chairman of a local government; it rests on the shoulder of the president, Federal Republic of Nigeria
“If any one steals one naira in Uyo or Bayelsa State, it is the responsibility of the president to stop and bring him to justice.
“I think it is something the federation and the federal government should do a lot to ensure that they carry out constitutional duties and responsibilities.”
He called for the celebration of good people, adding: “Let there be acceptance that this is what we want and let there be disgrace for the opposite; it must be we who can do that.”
