Nigeria: EFCC Seeks Bankers Cooperation On Fight Against Corruption
While appreciating the bank officials for their support and reiterated the strategic position of the bankers as a major Stakeholder in the fight against Corruption, he submitted: “It is important for us to meet periodically like this to know ourselves better, review our collaborations and form a synergy that will strengthen the continuous support and partnership between the banks and the Commission. You are very important to our investigations because there is no single case we do without an intervention and input from the bank”.The Bank Compliance Officers had a common ground while responding to the observations and requests, as they pledged to foster a better working relationship with the Commission and ensure prompt attentions and interventions to any request from the Commission.
However, some of them lamented that the lapses are as a result of protracted reporting channels in the banks and the volume of deliverables expected of them.
“We are not unaware of the importance of a robust working relationship with the Commission and as such we look forward to a better collaboration”, one of the Compliance Officers said.
