Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu, has urged religious leaders to focus more on encouraging Nigerians to embrace integrity and hard-work.
The EFCC boss made the plea at St. Luke Anglican Church, Lalupon, Ibadan, while addressing members of the Oyo State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), during their congress.
Magu, who was represented by Friday Ebelo, the Head, Ibadan Zonal Office of the commission, said such admonition by religious leaders would further encourage Nigerians to play their roles effectively in national development.
He noted that Nigeria was at a critical stage of its development, adding that all citizens must sincerely come together and work hard to salvage the situation.
Earlier, the Chairman of CAN in the state, Pastor Benjamin Akanmu, said that the agency’s efforts in combating economic and financial crimes were yielding positive results.
