The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Nuhu Ribadu has pledged total support to the actualization of the mandate of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).
“EFCC shall give NEITI enforcement support,” said Mr. Ribadu when the chairman of NEITI, Dr. Siyan Malomo paid him a courtesy call recently. “The law setting up EFCC gives us the power to get involved. And we are very much ready to participate fully to ensure the continued success of NEITI.”
Mr. Ribadu said EFCC was ready to prosecute any erring companies or individuals, in addition to collaborating with NEITI in other areas to ensure the realization of its mandate.
