We Set Up EFCC To Fight Corruption, Not To EntertainNigerians — PDP

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,has been charged to stop what it described as a circus show,by the people's democratic party, noting the agency had drifted
from the focussed body established in 2003 by Olusegun Obasanjo, who became President on its platform.


Reacting to funds discovered by the EFCC in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos, PDP alleged that under President Muhammadu
Buhari, the anti-corruption fight had lost focus.
The opposition party said it had become embarrassing for the anti-graft agency to keep
finding money in apartments and offices without disclosing the identity of the owners.
The party accused the EFCC of refusing to reveal the “true identity” of owner of the flat
where the money was discovered.
It also urged the anti-graft agency to tell Nigerians the owners of the funds discovered
at Kaduna airport, Victoria Island and Balogun market in Lagos state.

The party tweeted yesterday: “The PDP administration established the EFCC to fight
corruption effectively & efficiently and not to entertain Nigerians.”
“The anti-corruption fight under the APC govt has become comedy. The EFCC now discovers funds in apartments and offices that have no owners.”
“It is preposterous to imagine that the last four seizures coincidentally have no
known owners. This is most unfortunate and embarrassing.
“Who are the owners of N49 millionh at Kaduna Airport, N448 million at LEGICO
Mall, N250 million in Balogun Market and $43.4m, N23.2m & £27,000 in Osborne Road?
“The EFCC must also tell Nigerians the total amount they have recovered in the last two years & provide verifiable
accounts of recovered funds.”
