The Estu Nupe, His Royal Highness, Alhaji (Dr.) Yahaya Abubakar and Emir of Zazzau, Amb Ahmed Nuhu Bamali, have expressed total support for the Executive Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ola Olukoyede in his fight against the menace of economic and financial crimes and other acts of corruption.

They expressed their support separately on Tuesday May7, 2024 and Monday May 13, 2024 while playing hosts to Acting Zonal Director, Kaduna Zonal Command, DCE Dr. Benedict Ubi and his team while on courtesy visits to the two Emirates.

Both the Estu of Nupe and Emir of Zazzau charged the entire team of the EFCC to always put the fear of God in their minds in the discharge of their duties while acknowledging the good work the Commission is doing for the nation, saying they will not relent in putting in efforts to support the EFCC and other law enforcement agencies in stamping out corruption and other forms of criminalities.

Abubakar prays for God’s guidance on the work the EFCC is doing and assures that the doors of the Niger Emirate will always be open to the Commission.

Bamali, in his address, also commended the EFCC for the transformation and changes the Commission has made professionally especially with regards to engagement with the public.

Earlier in his speech, Ubi thanked the two Emirates respectively, saying the EFCC needed the blessings of the traditional rulers in carrying out its assigned mandate while also calling on them to deepen their partnership with the Commission through adequate promotion of ethics, values and behavioural change among their subjects.


He further said that the anti-corruption drive was guided strictly by the rule of law, accountability and transparency.
