Corruption Has No Colour, Christians and Muslims are Responsible – EFCC chairman
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman, Ola Olukoyede, has hinted that corruption has no colour, emphasizing that both Christians and Muslims share responsibility for Nigeria’s corruption challenges.
Speaking at a two-day workshop on enhancing fiscal discipline organized by the Kaduna State Ministry of Local Government, Olukoyede highlighted that corruption knows no religious or tribal boundaries.
Represented by EFCC Zonal Commander ACE Aisha Abubakar, Olukoyede urged local governments to actively support the anti-corruption efforts of Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.
He asserted that corruption is a pervasive issue requiring a collective effort of the local government tier, being the government nearest to the populace, and as one of the best agencies that can drive the much-needed wider participation of the local population in the anti-corruption campaign.
Emphasizing the non-religious nature of the fight against corruption, he reiterated, “Let me stress here, that corruption has no colour, no tribe and religion. The people that steal Nigeria’s resources are both Christians and Muslims. It is not a battle between religions; corruption fight is also not between tribes,” he said according to Leadership.
“What we are fighting in this country is a battle between good and evil; it is a collective battle for the soul of Nigeria; a battle for the future generation of yet unborn Nigerians; it is indeed, the battle for the future of Africa,” he concluded.
