President Buhari this Thursday commissioned the newly built EFCC headquarters in Abuja, just after his two-day working visit to Jigawa state.
The building which is a 10-storey building was constructed with a whopping N24 billion. The office, located along Airport Road, Jabi, in the Federal Capital Territory was finally completed this year after the building’s foundation was first laid on February 2, 2011. It will serve as the anti-graft agency’s headquarters after conducting its operations from rented quarters for years.
At the commissioning, President Buhari said his administration’s fight against corruption is an attempt to save the country and not to persecute anyone. He said:
“My objective of fighting corruption remains steadfast. The goal of this administration is to protect public trust. We are not engaged in witch-hunting.”
The event was attended by the EFCC Chief, Ibrahim Magu, House of Reps Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, amongst other dignitaries
