Save Nigeria's EFCC sign now

Nigerian's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was formed about a year ago, under the leadership of one Nuhu Ribabu.

Although, the agency is yet to secure any successful legal prosecution, it has made remarkable success in the number of arrests of corrupt Nigerian government officials, and continues it's efforts by showing an aggressive willingness to prosecute corrupt persons in court.

A few months ago, the Nigerian government announced a new committee (Cybercrime Committee), to further look into the Cybercrime issue. Our sources tell us, that the new committee, is poised to recommend that EFCC be relived of all 419 investigative authority, and be replaced with a new Central Authority.


A) Granted, EFCC has not been totally effective against 419, it has been the most effective to date with the number of arrests and cases in court.

B) We hear from our sources, that Nuhu Ribadu, may be touching political nerves by publicly disclosing that some governors have ill gained wealth stashed overseas. There is political pressure underway to render Nuhu Ridadu, and his agency useless.

C) Can Nigeria really afford another white elephant project?
The creation of a new agency will cost millions. EFCC is currently undertaking the development of a financial intelligence system; the technical and organizational resources will be similar to those of Cyber crime investigations. There will be resource duplication.

D) Why has the President created EFCC, only now to want to render it useless?

    No other agency has shown as much promise to stop these 419 crimes and Ribabu is not a yes man...leave this agency alone so your county can stop being the criminal nation of the universe. I have been scammed for $83,000 in the last few weeks...

    The Nuhu Ribadu led commission should be fully supported and given the opportunity to prove its worth. It is only then that it can be fully and properly evaluated. It is a good initiative of the failed PDP government of Obasanjo. It is one test case of th

    I am not in support of the creation of the (Cybercrime Committee) as this will render the EFCC inactive and will also amount to a duplication of efffort.

    Let us let this good Ribadu and some of his team are doing to continue. The personnel for the intended outfit can be superintended with the EFCC. This good organisation of Government must not be let to die.

    One is not particularly surprised that, the government is duplicating its effort in tackling problem such as this.We will be naive to think that our 419 riddled assembly will sit back and allow the government to kick them out of their lucreative position.

    The commission must not be weakened but strengthened to be more effective given the rise in 419 activities on the internet originating from nigeria.
