PRESIDENT BUHARI on Saturday lamented that corruption has retarded development as well as dented the image of the country among the comity of nations.
Against this background, the President Called on officers and men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to redouble their efforts in the war against corruption.
Buhari also charged the commission to spare no one irrespective of their profile in the country in tackling corruption.
The President gave the charge at the passing out parade of cadets of the EFCC Superintendent Course 8 from the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna.
The President was represented at the event by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.
The President said his administration had made significant progress in tackling corruption over the years and added that brought embarrassment to Nigeria before the international community.
He said his administration would not relent in the fight against corruption especially cybercrime and financial crimes, adding that his government would ensure that every corrupt person was brought to justice.
PRESIDENT BUHARI said, “As part of efforts to boost the war against corruption in Nigeria, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has trained a total of 328 new investigative officers at the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna State.
“The training is to prepare them adequately ahead of their deployment as anti-graft investigators across the country.
“This colourful passing-out parade follows their completion of a year-long intensive training in the elite training institution.”
PRESIDENT BUHARI reminded the cadets that much was expected from them in supporting the ongoing fight against corruption while urging them to live above board.
