EFCC Has Recovered N500bn, Secured 486 Convictions Under Me – Magu by 10Ebisco: 7:06am On May 16
The Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has said that the country has recovered N500 billion and secured 486 convictions since he took over in November 2015 till date.

He made this known at the commissioning of the commission’s new head office in Abuja on Tuesday.

“In 2018 alone, we have secured 89 convictions. Thus so far, we have secured 486 convictions from November 2015 till date. We have recovered funds in different currencies and, so far, we have recovered more than N500 billion.

“The recoveries meant for the Federal Government are duly remitted to its account while recoveries for individuals and private institutions are equally paid to them in accordance with the law.

“We are also making strides as it relates to the prosecution of high-profile cases. For instance, for the first time in the history of Nigeria, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria was convicted in a case prosecuted by the EFCC.

“I, therefore, again, restate the commitment of the Commission to the fight against corruption.

“We do not go after innocent citizens, we go after those who have stolen and arrogated same to themselves, like President Buhari has said.”

Dignitaries at the event included President Muhammadu Buhari, Speaker of the House Representtives, Yakubu Dogara, and Commonwealth Secretary General Baroness Patricia Scotland.

With such accomplishments, it is time to take a bow.

Because the new administration will not retain an EFCC boss who wears Buhari's lapel.
Forgetting that he heads an independent institution.

What is corruption?
The lopsided recruitment of 10,000 policemen & women based on Local Govt quota is that not corruption?

It means 10,000/774 = 12.9
That implies that Kano state gets 44*12.9= 567

Bayelsa state gets 8*12.9 =103

Old Kano state which includes Jigawa state 77*12.9 = 993

Old Lagos state 20*12.9= 258
This means that one state alone takes 10% of the total recruited.
And we all know that LGAs were created by the military at their whims and not based on demographics.

Perhaps we should adopt state policing so that every area will recruit according to their ability and need.

OK kudos
But should we now join you to wear Buhari's lapel pin
Should we promote you as IG
Should we give you accolades?
Oya take am

If good lecturers tell you what they have achieved
If a permanent secretary in the civil service tells you what has been achieved
If a good doctor tells you the feats achieved
Or a builder,lawyer, journalist, our Jack Bauer in SARS, or people in ICPC, Customs guy, NAFDAC and NURTW grin you will let us rest about EFCC matter

We want to see change on the street and in our homes, on our plates, in our lives
Water, food, low cost of living, world class primary health care, revamped education at all levels, limited pot holes in roads and even none, SECURITY of lives and properties...

Create jobs or make the environment good for entrepreneurs or the self employed and even the retired.

Buhari, Osinbanjo and APC and others, these are the bare necessities Baloo I mean Man-cub sorry I mean we in Nigeria are asking for, paying tax for and praying for undecided
