The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has called on women across the country to show more commitment and dedication to the fight against economic and financial crimes.

This call was made in Abuja on Thursday, June 9, 2022 by the Secretary to the EFCC, Mr. George Ekpungu while receiving the delegation of the National Council for Women`s Societies, NCWS, at the Commission’s Headquarters. According to him, women are better equipped to influence their men against any form of corrupt practices and should work better to separate themselves and people around them from fraudulent dealings.

“The EFCC is keen on partnering and collaborating with women, I think women are not as corrupt as men, so we need our women to tell our men that the amount of money being stolen can fix our roads, build hospitals and develop this country…”, he said. He commended the NCWS’s President, Hajia Lami Adamu Lau and her members on their roles in mobilizing women for socially-desirable works and assured them of more support from the EFCC. “I commend the works you are doing and I will discuss with the Executive Chairman for whatever support we will give, especially exposing you to the international organizations to promote the good works you are doing..” he said.

Earlier in her remark, Lau commended the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa on the rising success of the EFCC in tackling economic and financial crimes, stressing that her group was committed to promoting women leadership, economic empowerment and partnership for national development, through “advocacy, education and cultural mainstreaming for women, children and youths”. She also promised more involvement in the works of the EFCC.

“We reiterate the fact that women remain committed to a better Nigerian society and that’s why we are willing to collaborate with the EFCC in fighting financial crimes, we will also make ourselves available for all anti-corruption activities”, she said.
