A former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has called for the independence of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC).

According to him, the EFCC and other anti-graft agencies should report to the National Assembly instead of the executive arm of government.

Atiku  suggested this in London on Monday in a speech titled “Good Governance and Development: Notes on Nigeria.”

“Good governance in Nigeria will include a relentless effort to curb corruption in public life. And this should not be merely dealing with corruption after the fact.

“Perhaps, more important are the efforts to prevent corruption from taking place, especially through the removal of the opportunities for corruption and imposing strong sanctions for the corrupt.

“Such efforts should also include ensuring the independence of the anti-corruption agencies through such measures as funding them through the first-line charge in the consolidated revenue fund and having them report to the parliament.”
