The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) led by Barrister Adebayo Somefun has expressed its determination to identify with the anti-corruption drive of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Somefun, during a visit to the Commission on Thursday, July 20, 2017 said that, “the new management of NSITF is solidly behind the EFCC in its bid to change the country for better, as change itself is inevitable”.
According to him, “In order for Nigeria to rise above the present gloomy economic times, Nigerians need to view problems as the optimistic who sees opportunities in difficulties in contrast to the pessimist who sees challenges as difficulties”.
“We are here to lend our support and pledge our support to EFCC so that by the time we are leaving we would have left a good footprint in the sands of time”, he added.
Magu, thanked the NSITF team for the visit and expressed EFCC’s readiness to partner with the organization noting that, the anti-graft needed support in enlightening the masses on the ills of corruption.
The Anti-graft czar noted that other countries such as Malaysia, Singapore and Pakistan have recorded successes in the corruption fight in their respective nations and called on Nigerians to take ownership of the fight against corruption.
“I believe that the victory in curbing corruption can be replicated in Nigeria as well. We consider as our primarily responsibility, the need to eradicate corruption and prepare a better future for Nigerians”, Magu said.
