Yakubu Dogara says there are millions of Nigerians who have not bowed their knees to the god of corruption.
Buhari, Boss Mustapha were amongst guests who joined the EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, at the event.
”As a representative of history, a prophet cried to God that there was no pure prophet any more, that they had all bent their knees to baal,” he said.
“God replied this prophet that He had reserved in that city thousands who had not bent their knees to baal. There are millions of Nigerians who have not bent their knees to the god of corruption, that fact I must emphasize,” he added.
Dogara maintained that it was through the support of the National Assembly that funds were put together to complete the institution.
He admonished the officials of EFCC to be steadfast in their fight against corruption.
”We expect that the officers of the EFCC should be angels, that is not a misplaced expectation, except for the reminder that angel live in heaven, they don’t live in hell,” he said.
”We have the active responsibility, and should take measures to insulate men and the staff of this agency from temptations, that is by ensuring a practical means of engagement and service for them.”
Also, the Deputy Chief of Staff, Government House, Mr Daniel Ogungbe noted that the concern of the state government was based on the urgency with which the suspects were transferred to Abuja.
