EFCC Chairman Vows to Prosecute Former Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello


Ola Olukoyede, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has pledged to pursue the prosecution of former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, to its logical conclusion.

Speaking to journalists at the EFCC Headquarters in Abuja’s Jabi area on Tuesday, Olukoyede also promised that those who obstructed Bello’s arrest would face the full weight of the law.

Olukoyede made it clear that no amount of resistance or attacks against the EFCC would deter the agency from its mission to combat corruption and cleanse the country’s public institutions. “We will not relent in helping to sanitize the country,” he declared.

Highlighting the importance of public support for the EFCC’s endeavors, Olukoyede emphasized that the agency’s success is closely tied to Nigeria’s well-being. “If the EFCC fails, Nigeria fails,” he said, underscoring the critical role the agency plays in maintaining the integrity of the nation’s financial system and governance.

The EFCC Chairman also pointed out that the agency’s efforts have already begun to yield positive results for the country’s economy.

He cited improvements in the value of the Naira and stability in the foreign exchange market as some of the tangible benefits of the EFCC’s ongoing anti-corruption campaigns.

The vow to prosecute Yahaya Bello comes amid allegations of financial misconduct and corruption during his tenure as Kogi State Governor.

The EFCC has been investigating several cases linked to Bello’s administration, and the agency is determined to ensure that justice is served.
