The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, says it will stage an anti-corruption walk on Tuesday to further encourage Nigerians on the need to shun corruption.
A statement from the EFCC’s head of media and publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said the walk will hold simultaneously in 10 states of the federation where the commission currently has offices.
According to the statement, the walk which will be led by the acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, is part of activities to mark the second year of this administration’s fight against corruption.
The ruling All Progressives Congress led by President Muhammadu Buhari will on May 29 attain its second year since the party assumed leadership of Nigeria, and began its plan to fight corruption in the country.
