“All of us are going to declare our assets; from Level 17, downward. I did mine, so there’s no reason for anyone to be afraid to do the same. Even the commission’s secretary did, you all may also have done it in the past, but there’s a need for all of us to do it again. We will declare our assets, and we are going to investigate them,” the EFCC chairman was quoted as saying.

“We must live above board by setting the pace with good examples. As anti-corruption fighters, our hands must be clean and so we must declare our assets.”

Encouraging the commission’s employees to focus more on the fundamental principles of combatting economic and financial crimes, Olukoyede emphasized that these endeavors should aim at fostering the nation’s economic growth, fostering a conducive environment for increased investment, and fortifying the economic foundation.

Additionally, the EFCC head urged the staff to maintain professionalism, thoroughness in their operations, uphold integrity, and remain impartial.
