The Administrative Staff College of Nigeria, ASCON, on Monday, June 8, 2020 commended the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu for his efforts towards ridding the country of the scourge of corruption.
Speaking during a working visit to Magu at the Commission’s headquarters, ASCON’s board chairman, Honourable Nduka Anyanwu stated that the sterling efforts of the Acting Chairman in making Nigeria a better place are not going unnoticed among Nigerians and the global community.
“We are aware of your achievements. Nigerians are proud of you and are praying for you,” he said.
The ASCON board chair who came in company of a board member and Commandant, Police Staff College, AIG. Shola David and Director, ASCON, Abuja Liaison Office, Abdul A. Rabiu, explained that the visit was to further strengthen the working relationship between the EFCC and ASCON.
He appealed to the Commission to assist it with an office building, for its training, from the properties forfeited by fraudsters and other corrupt elements in the society. Such a gesture, Anyanwu said, will save the government the cost of acquisition of such a facility.
Magu in his response, expressed his warm appreciation for the visit and assured the team of the Commission’s willingness to grant the request, stressing that forfeited properties would serve better purposes if released for the use of government agencies.
He disclosed that some of the Commission’s staff are products of ASCON’S training. “ASCON is a household name. I have also attended your trainings. It is a training school of pride with robust training services. We are ready to oblige your request,” Magu stated.
Among those who were on hand to receive the ASCON delegation was Secretary to the Commission, Ola Olukoyode and Director, Organizational Support (DOS), Dr Aminu Gusau.
