The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulkarim Chukkol, has reaffirmed the commission’s commitment to vigorously combat corruption and all types of economic and financial crimes in the country. He made this statement during the passing-out ceremony of 318 cadets from the EFCC Academy in Karu, Abuja.

Mr. Chukkol emphasized that the EFCC is at the forefront of the fight against corruption and financial crimes and is intensifying its efforts to tackle these detrimental activities. He mentioned that economic and financial crimes are continuously evolving, and the commission must continue its fierce battle against them by employing prevention through awareness campaigns and enforcement to act as a deterrent.

He highlighted that the EFCC is currently undergoing reorganization and strategic realignment to enhance its effectiveness and position in combating corruption and economic crimes.

During the ceremony, Mr. Chukkol cautioned the newly graduated cadets against engaging in any form of corruption, disloyalty, or disobedience to constituted authority, warning that such actions would result in immediate expulsion from the commission.

George Ekpungu, the commission’s secretary, also reminded the cadets to maintain integrity and professionalism in their duties, stressing that any misconduct or compromise of their office would lead to their dismissal.

Earlier, Tayo Olowonihi, the commandant of the EFCC Academy, praised all those who contributed to the successful training of the 318 cadets. The cadets underwent basic law enforcement training for 12 months, from July 31, 2022, to July 21, 2023.
