My attention has been drawn to a recent The Guardian online publication of 31/07/2019 which was purportedly written and signed by one Hon Ngozika Ihouma, Executive Secretary Legislative Watch.
I want to categorically state that, I never asked anybody to give such a demeaning statement against the leadership of the Ecomonic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which has been working very hard to reposition EFCC to its rightful place in the Fight against corruption in Nigeria.
I view this as the handiwork of some mischievous people whose aim is to discredit Maina and Hon Ngozika and pitch us against those we work with harmoniously.
I remained focused in helping the anti-graft agencies achieve their goals and nothing more.
I urge the public to ignore this story in its entirety.
I am focused on ensuring that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari continue working with stakeholders to develop our country and not dealing on trivial things.
