EFCC won’t dabble in political issues, says Lamorde


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde yesterday said the commission would not be influenced by politics.
He also asked the media to assist the anti-graft agency to prevent crooks from occupying political office.

Lamorde, who made the clarification while speaking with newsmen after the opening of a workshop on Reporting Economic Crimes organized by EFCC in Abuja, said the commission has not been engaging in selective investigations.

He said: “Our activities won’t be determined by who does what with government. We are not going to be drawn into political issues. We are doing our job and we will continue to do our job. We want the understanding of the journalists.”

He asked the media to complement the efforts of EFCC and other anti-graft agencies to stop corrupt elements from occupying political office.
He implored the media to feed Nigerians with antecedents of corrupt aspirants.


He added: At times if you check the history of somebody-the background-you will be able to write a story that he is not fit for public office. Maybe he has mental issue, maybe he was arrested as a youngster and he has been stealing in his secondary school perhaps he was sent it of school, maybe he was caught in his university with disc there is a history.
