The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has called on Chatham House to ensure that the findings of its research intervention in the fight against corruption in Nigeria are grafted into the programmes of the anti- corruption agencies in the country. He made the plea Wednesday September 14 at a dinner organized by the Royal Institute of International Affairs for researchers and participants in its workshop on Social Norms of Corruption in Nigeria at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja. He said the Commission was pleased by the institute’s intervention, adding that the EFCC is open to closer cooperation with Chatham House.
Earlier, Leena Koni Hoffman of the Africa programme, Chatham House had restated the purpose of the Social Norm of Corruption research, which she said is designed to provide explanation for the behaviours that exists around corruption and provide policy input against the scourge.
Six states and the Federal Capital Territory have been chosen for the study.
The dinner was the precursor for the main workshop which began on Thursday September 15 and will end on Friday, September 16, 2016.
