Tinubu said this while inaugurating commissioning the ultramodern Enugu Zonal Command Complex of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)in Enugu on Tuesday

He said that while things been changing for the better in the past six months, 2024 would manifest the fullness of his administration’s many reforms.

Tinubu, who was represented by Nuhu Ribadu, the National Security Adviser (NSA), the security forces for the good work they were currently doing in the country.

 “First, I’m bringing the greetings of Mr President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He said I should congratulate you and your team. Thank you for the good work you are doing.

“He said that I should thank the armed forces of Nigeria, the military, the security forces, the police, the SSS, and the rest for the good work you are doing in our country today.

“Everyone will agree with me that things are changing. In just the first six months of his own administration, we are beginning to see what is possible. We want to also encourage you, to go this direction.

“We need our country to work. We need things to improve. We want to do the right things. And he (Mr President) is in the forefront of doing that. Things are changing in Nigeria. In 2024, wait and see what is going to happen.

“It is important that law enforcement agencies which are critical to our collective safety, security, prosperity, and general well-being, are afforded necessary facilities to ensure their welfare and efficiency. This is why I commend the chairman of the EFCC and his team for this initiative.

“I’m confident that the state-of-the-art facility will further motivate the staff to rededicate themselves to the course of fighting economic and financial crimes, emerging challenges hindering our development as a nation.”

“Support workers, give them what is needed, make the environment okay so that we can get maximum out of all that are involved and participating in the Renewed Hope. Issues of welfare, in particular, are important to law enforcement officers who stake their comfort and oftentimes, their safety and lives for our own well-being.

“I want to assure you that this administration will not compromise when it comes to looking after your welfare.

“All we ask in return is a total commitment to the mandate of your agency. Beyond your regular activities of fighting various forms of fraud, I want to remind you that the EFCC is strategic to the counter-terrorism efforts of this Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration.

“It is my fervent hope that the commission will take a front row in the determined efforts to check the laundering of proceeds of violent crimes such as kidnapping, banditry and terrorism in our country and restore order and stability, particularly in the economy.

“You have the biggest responsibility to be in the forefront and get things back in order. A lot of things were done wrongly and mismanaged. It is you, EFCC, who should clean up and sanitize, do the right thing, and demonstrate that you are one of our best. Be honest, be just and be fair to all. That is what is needed. That is what you are known for.

“Things were done not necessarily in the best way that was expected. But now, it is your own duty and responsibility. Change it.

“Though I’m aware of the modest contributions of the commission in checking illicit financial flows, especially in the designated non-financial sector through the Special Control Unit Agency against money laundering, there is still potential for improvement.”

 “No agency can do it alone without the support and collaboration of others. I therefore call on other security organizations in this zone to work with the EFCC to ensure it achieves its objectives. (GBN)
