The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde, said yesterday that the commission has convicted more than 288 persons over internet crimes, extradited four fugitives to the United States while 234 cases are still being prosecuted in courts across the country.

Context. the forum was themed 'Regional Cooperation Against Internet-based Transnational Fraud'

The continued existence of the EFCC is a waste of resources, nonetheless.

The present administration appears to be fixated with the idea of quick fixes. Doubtless, the Orosonya committee's work has plenty of merit, makes sense, that is. Typically, the President obviously cowed by the high-sounding sanctimonious prescriptions of the committee, and clearly under pressure to prove himself capable, is in a haste to fall into another trap set by his enemies, who, of course, understand his psychology: show him money that can be 'saved' and you have him. The issues are not as simplistic as the committee is making out. Orosonya is just out of job and is clearly looking for another, hence the need to impress the President. The President has been on that seat long enough to have learnt some restraint by now. Scrapping bogus bodies and merging others with overlapping mandates may sound nice and progressive, but a lot of ground work needs be done before implementation.What we need is systematically overhaul that why we have president................ cool
