The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied media reports in which its Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, vows to investigate alleged corruption at the National Social Investment Programmes (NSIP) supervised by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
In a statement sent to Pulse by its spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren, the anti-graft agency said comments attributed to Magu during a forum had been completely taken out of context.
“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report captioned,
“There is corruption in N-SIP programme- Magu”, which appeared in the Punch Newspaper of Wednesday September 25, 2019 and a few other newspapers, in which the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu was quoted as saying that there is corruption in the National Social Investment Programme and the Anchor Borrower’s Programme.
“The papers claim that Magu, who spoke through the Spokesperson of the agency, Wilson Uwujaren at the 15th Anti- Corruption Situation Room organised by the Human and Environmental Development Agenda in Kaduna on Tuesday September 24, 2019, asked the civil society organizations “to investigate the N-SIP.”
“The Commission wishes to disclaim the reports as false and a mischievous twist of the goodwill message presented by Mr. Uwujaren on corruption and peace building in conflict communities.
“In the presentation, the EFCC spokesperson observed that the agency had received complaints in some zones regarding the social investment programmes, citing an example in Gombe where the Commission investigated a case in the Anchor Borrower’s Scheme in which sand was bagged and passed off as fertilizer.
“He therefore warned that for the crises in these conflict zones not to degenerate, civil society organisations should play more active roles in monitoring the programmes to ensure that their benefits get to the people for which they are intended,”
The EFCC statement reads.
