The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says renown political economist, Prof. Pat Utomi, has asked for its collaboration to promote government’s anti-corruption campaign in the private sector.
Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement recently.
“Utomi explained that part of the reason for his visit was to explore how he could engage the commission in bringing anti-money laundering knowledge and practices to players in the private sector of the Nigerian economy.
“He also expressed willingness to lend support to the commission’s prevention efforts by engaging youths in the states, particularly Delta where he hails from.”
“The renown political economist who is passionate about anti-corruption issues, observed that corruption remained the greatest threat to Nigeria’s development.
“He pledged to support the efforts of the commission in changing the narrative as far as the fight against corruption was concerned,” the spokesman said.
