President Muhammadu Buhari has warned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to avoid being used for partisan politics in its operations.

The President, who gave the warning at the Unveiling of EFCC’s Standard Operating Procedures, Policies, and Manuals, at the State House, urged the Commission to focus on serving the nation and entrenching good governance.

He also advised leaders and all operatives of the Commission to resist the temptation of being influenced by political actors for personal gains.

In his remarks, the chairman of EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa explained that the institution was undergoing various phases of reforms to reposition it for the task of fighting financial crimes in the country, with the production of policies and manuals.

Speaking further, Bawa revealed that a mobile app, coined ‘The Evil Eye’, has been deployed for ease of reporting economic and financial crimes from the comfort of homes.
