In an effort to put a stop to contract abuse, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has requested anti-corruption strategies from the Presidency, the National Assembly Commission, the Federal Judicial Service Commission, and all other Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).

The EFCC has given all MDAs until March 1 to submit their plans.

President Bola Tinubu’s administration has made fighting corruption in MDAs a priority, and the anti-graft agency has stated that this directive is consistent with that goal.

The President’s Chief of Staff, the Permanent Secretary of State House, Aso Rock Villa, the Chairman of the National Assembly Commission, and the Secretary of the Federal Judicial Service Commission were all served with individual letters by the EFCC demanding compliance.

The decision was made in accordance with the President’s January inauguration of the Fraud Risk Assessment Prevention and Control Project for MDAs, according to the statement.

In order to combat corruption and other forms of financial crime that are common in MDAs, this project will analyze the current anti-corruption mechanisms in place, looking for weaknesses and voids.

To help the commission combat corruption in government contracts and procurement, your office has developed a comprehensive anti-corruption policy or plan.

Please be informed that the commission is requesting a response to this matter by Friday, March 1, 2024, at the latest, as stated in the letter.
