The Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has called for stronger purpose and efficiency as measures of combating economic and financial crimes and other acts of corruption.

Olukoyede made this call on Thursday in Abuja at the Opening Session of a Management Retreat of officers of the EFCC, themed, “Repositioning EFCC for Greater Efficiency”.

He said the fight against corruption needed to be fought with vigour, tenacity of purpose, clear focus, doggedness, and efficiency to achieve optimal results.

“Every success in the fight against corruption will be determined by genuineness, efficiency, and need for higher productivity. Be painstaking in all you do, be thorough with a mind to respect the law”, he said.

He tasked officers of the EFCC to be ready to make more sacrifices and add more value to the work of fighting corruption.

He charged the officers not to rest on their oars but to adhere to his three-pronged agenda that had been robustly presented to Nigerians.

Olukoyede emphasized the need to respect the rule of law, maintaining that getting results was good but the method more important.
