EFCC: Magu’s Expansionist Theory
There is no doubt that the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu is a man with a vision.
Appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari, he assumed office on Wednesday, November 11, 2015.
Aside from his astuteness and unrelenting drive in the fight against economic and financial crimes, his expansionist approach to the Commission’s operations across the country is unequalled in the annals of EFCC’s 14 years of existence.
Today, the acting Chairman gathered a host of stakeholders, including the creme de ‘la creme and critical members of the civil society, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to commission the Ibadan Office of the EFCC.
Located at No 16, Revd Oyebode Crescent, Iyaganku GRA, the Ibadan office is one of three offices established by Magu’s management in the past 18 months, towards making popular ownership of the war against corruption more possible.
Others are Kaduna Office located at No 4, Wurno Road, Kaduna, Kaduna State and Benin Office located at 1A, Court Road, GRA, Benin, Edo State.
Also re-activated, as part of efforts to boost the operational network of the Commission, is the Maiduguri Office located at Plot No 80 Baba Shehu Lamin Street, Opposite Elkanemi College, Tudun Wada Layout, Maiduguri, Borno State.
