The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has charged new staff of the agency to detest corruption.
Magu told the new cadets that corruption is the mother of all crimes, saying they must hate it.
He stated this on Monday, January 30, at the opening of the second phase of the Detective Assistant course II programme at the EFCC Academy, Karu, Abuja.
Magu urged the cadets not to be part of any action capable of compromising their official duties while stressing that every evil is rooted in corruption.
He added that courage, discipline, commitment, and loyalty are key in the ongoing anti-corruption.
He said: “We are passionately involved in fighting corruption, all of you must hate corruption and you should not be found to be involved in corrupt practices.
“We have zero tolerance for internal corruption. We will figure you out, dismiss you and prosecute you.”
The EFCC boss warned those who joined the commission for monetary gains to “better leave now.”
