The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Nigeria Air Force, NAF, have resolved to harness existing relationships towards tackling corruption and redeeming the economic fortunes of the country.
This resolve was made when the EFCC zonal head, Makurdi Office, Mr. Daniel Isei visited Air Officer, Commanding Tactical Air Command, Nigeria Air Force, AVM OR Philip, in his office on Wednesday.
Mr. Isei said he visited to appreciate the support of the Nigeria Air Force and to solicit for more robust synergy between the NAF and EFCC in tackling the different shades of corruption that have stagnated the country.
“The essence of the visit is to ask for the support of NAF, so that the EFCC can effectively deal with the issues of economic and financial crimes. You have always been there for us in the past and I want to leverage on the existing understanding between the two agencies for us to achieve more,” he said.
Responding, AVM Philip appreciated the EFCC for the visit saying collaboration of the NAF and the EFCC is crucial to the success in the fight against corruption.
He assured that the Nigeria Air Force Tactical Air Command was ready to offer its best services in the interest of the nation.
In a press Statement signed by the Commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, Philip said “We welcome you and your team. The Air Force always welcomes people as our friends.
Nigeria is our country and we owe it a duty to make it work for the good of all citizens.
Therefore, whatever support that you may require from us, so long as it is within our powers, we’ll gladly do,” he said.
