The Nigerian Air Force Commander in Kano, Air Commodore Mohammed Aminu Isah has commended the Commission for its role in fighting terrorism in Nigeria.
He made the commendation during a courtesy visit to the Kano Zonal Office of EFCC.
“We are all working towards ensuring the security of this country, the EFCC is ensuring that crime in terms if financial racketeering is reduced to the barest minimum because it is when we have a stable economy that we will have progress. Your work is very vital to curtail the spread of kidnappings and banditry. I commend you for your efforts”. He said.
He called on Nigerians to avoid short cuts to wealth and assured the Commission of the NAF readiness to come to its aid when dealing with hostile suspects. “In the course of your duty, some people who have stolen public funds will be aggrieved when you come for them. They feel you have come to take their ill-gotten wealth,. In such circumstances, you may need to apply a bit of physical strength and the NAF is just a phone call away”.
Isah also applauded President Muhammadu Buhari and congratulated the Commission for the recent appointment of, Abdulrasheed Bawa, as Chairman. He expresses admiration for the new Chairman and wished well in his new assignment.
In his response, the Zonal Head, Sanusi Aliyu Mohammed assured the Nigerian Air Force that the EFCC has both internal and external mechanisms which guide its operation and conduct of its staff. “Internally, we have Directorate of Internal Affairs. They monitor us, they watch us as we work and they also receive complains from members of the public where there is any unprofessional conduct by our staff”, he said.
