Stop Promoting Corrupt Nigerians, EFCC To Media




The Nigerian media has been urged by Abdurasheed Bawa, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to stop promoting currupt Nigerians.

Bawa, made this plea during the opening of a workshop on financial crime reporting organised for the journalists covering its activities in Abuja.

“I want to use this opportunity to further urge media practitioners to put the interest of our country at heart, particularly as it relates to a conscientious effort not to celebrate the corrupt in our midst. I urge you to expose them on the pages of your newspapers, screens of television or on your various online platforms.

“The war against corruption is a worthy fight for the soul of Nigeria, and for the future generation; it should not be left to the EFCC alone,” he said.

He noted that the decision of the commission to sponsor the workshop underscored the importance it attached to the role of the media in the fight against economic and financial crimes.
