Emmanuel Arubi wrote:

“EFCC of no value, what did country benefit from them, looting from looters to their own pocket.”

Meanwhile, the EFCC’s boss, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has urged his employees to be hardworking and dedicated to their jobs, saying that Nigerians look up to them for success in the fight against corruption.

Bawa gave the advice during a visit to the commission’s Ibadan zonal office on Thursday, April 8.
