In a recent development at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Chairman Ola Olukoyede has issued a directive compelling all commission personnel to declare their assets in alignment with civil service regulations.
This move, aimed at promoting transparency and integrity within the agency, was announced by EFCC spokesperson Dele Oyewale in a statement released on Tuesday.
Olukoyede emphasized the importance of leading by example, stating, “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.”
The chairman further noted that this asset declaration process would be accompanied by rigorous investigations, ensuring that EFCC staff maintain the highest ethical standards.
The EFCC chairman urged employees to focus on the core mission of combating economic and financial crimes.
He stressed the importance of professionalism, integrity, and impartiality in their work, warning those engaged in unethical conduct that dire consequences would follow.
He also underscored his dedication to treating all personnel fairly and impartially, regardless of religious, ethnic, or regional affiliations.
