The Federal Government has inaugurated a 23-member governing board of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He congratulated the board members on their appointment, and urged them to work towards policies that will contribute significantly to the fight against corruption. The EFCC Chairman, Abdul Rasheed Bawa, who is also the chairman of the board, noted that the commission had been without a board for six years sequel to series of events that warranted its non-existence.
