“Corruption is a borderless crime. We are putting our resources together to allow us to go to Ghana without restrictions and recover our stolen property back home. I am appealing to Nigerians to trust the Commission with relevant information about corrupt practices in the country. There are a lot of looters hiding in Ghana. We are already talking; we will bring them back. We will go bring the assets back to the country”.

The EFCC boss was made a fellow of the institute by the delegation for his tenacious efforts he is putting to investigate and arrest all perpetuators of financial crimes in Africa’s most populous country.
