  • Buhari Inaugurates EFCC's New Office In Abuja

The President made these claims in his speech during the inauguration of the new headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) situated at Jabi District in Abuja.

In his welcome address, Mr Magu described the presence of his colleagues from Commonwealth African countries for the meeting as an endorsement of Nigeria's efforts against corruption.

He however maintained that, "we never intended, and we are not engaged in witch-hunts, but we are determined within the laws to call people to account". I want Nigerians to take ownership, it should not be left to the anti-corruption agencies alone.

"I was removed as Head of State, detained for three years".

"So, in spite of that my objective of fighting corruption remains steadfast".

Scotland said President Muhammadu Buhari was very clear on the repatriation of the funds, saying that it is a matter of pride to the Commonwealth to have been able to assist Nigeria in getting her money back.

He said President Buhari has kept faith with his promise not to interfere with the operations of the anti-corruption agencies in the country.

"This fight against corruption is about Nigerians".

He said there is now a realisation that "corrupt officials would be brought to justice no matter how long it takes".

This is the only way we can ensure victory.

Permit me to also seize this opportunity to call on the Legislature which provides the legal framework for the anti-corruption war to add more verve to the determination of government to rid our nation of the brazen corruption witnessed in recent years, through reviewing archaic provisions in our laws and proactive passage of new legislation. We must CHANGE our ways of handling public trust.

He said: "It is the major reason why we are struggling with basic developmental issues that other comparable nations have long overcome".

"It has become the norm".

The High Commission shared the news of its support for the Nigerian agency on its verified Twitter handle. These assets, when repatriated will be put to building our infrastructure.

"I was there to launch that building, fantastic building and I really applaud the acting chairman because of the work that he has done".
