SGF urges EFCC to tackle corruption at conception stage



The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to devise ways of tackling institutional corruption at the conception stage.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), a statement in Abuja, yesterday, by the Director of Press, Office of the SGF, Mr. Lawrence Ojabo, quoted the SGF as making the call while receiving the Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, and the management team in his office.

He quoted the SGF as urging the commission to use advocacy campaigns to change the mindset of some public servants who regarded corruption as a way of guaranteeing a secured post-service life.


Mustapha expressed hope that the completion of the commission’s new head office in Abuja would ensure better management of its investigation, resources and personnel and provide a more enabling environment for the personnel to carry out their daunting and challenging responsibilities.

The SGF, however, commended the officials for carrying out their duties with courage and patriotism, even at great risk to their lives, saying: “Corruption in the country has become a hydra-headed monster, because it had become very pervasive and culturally entrenched.

“Dealing with a problem that has become a culture requires a lot of resolve on the part of the officials of the EFCC.
