The anti-graft agency in Nigeria says the fight against corruption by the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has redeemed the image of Nigeria in the international community and has also encouraged foreign investments in the country.

The Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, made the assertion on Monday when he visited the headquarters of National Union of Textile Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN), in Kaduna State.

Speaking to reporters during the visit, the EFCC boss, stressed the determination of the Federal Government to rid the country of corrupt practices.

Mr Magu urged all Nigerians to support the anti-graft war in order to create a conducive environment for foreign investors to come in.

On his part, the General Secretary of the NUTGTWN, Mr Issa Aremu, emphasised the need for the government to come up with a national strategic policy that would give a strong backing in combating corruption at all levels.

He says the collapse of many industries in Nigeria was due to corruption and calls for total support to the fight against corruption.

The comment of the EFCC’ boss came on the same day the former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Reuben Abati, was taken into custody by the anti-graft agency.

He was spotted at the EFCC premises at about 5:30PM on Monday.

Abati’s detention may not be unconnected to the anti-corruption campaign of the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration which has intensified with a clampdown on some public officials from the previous administration.
