Muhammadu Buhari has commissioned the new head office building of anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in Abuja on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
He commissioned the new building after returning from his two-day working visit to Jigawa state.
At the commissioning, President Buhari said his administration’s fight against corruption is an attempt to save the country and not to persecute anyone.
“My objective of fighting corruption remains steadfast. The goal of this administration is to protect public trust. We are not engaged in witch-hunting,” he said.
The office, located along Airport Road, Jabi, in the Federal Capital Territory, will now serve as the anti-graft agency’s headquaters after conducting its operations from rented quarters for years.
The construction of the 10-storey building was approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), during the administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan, on November 24, 2010.
