Staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have been ordered by the new chairman of the commission, Ola Olukoyede, to immediately declare their assets in line with civil service regulations and procedures.

The order was given in a statement issued by the spokesperson for the commission, Dele Oyewale on Tuesday.

According to the statement, Olukoyede issued the directive during a meeting with the staff at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.

The statement quoted the EFCC chairman as saying, “All of us are going to declare our assets; from Level 17, downward. I did mine, so there’s no reason for anyone to be afraid to do the same.

“Even the commission’s secretary did, you all may also have done it in the past, but there’s a need for all of us to do it again. We will declare our assets, and we are going to investigate them.

“We must live above board by setting the pace with good examples. As anti-corruption fighters, our hands must be clean and so we must declare our assets.”

Olukoyede tasked the staff to pay more premium attention to the basis of fighting economic and financial crimes, saying such efforts should be geared towards growing the economy of the nation, creating a rightful environment for enhanced investment and strengthening the productive base of the economy.

The EFCC boss also urged staff of the commission to be professional, thorough in their engagements, rich in integrity and non-partisan.

“We must do our job to add value to the nation. Investors must have confidence in the economy and we must help the country to be governed in an accountable and transparent manner. By doing this, it will offer us a new direction to redeem the image of the nation,” he said.
