Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), on Monday said President Muhammadu Buhari would not relent on his fight against corruption.
Fashola stated this during an inspection tour of the new Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) head office building.
“President Buhari is determined to strengthen the anti-graft agency in the fight against corruption,” he said.
“The number of convictions secured by the EFCC speaks for itself as to the achievements of the agency.”
On the importance of ensuring adequate electricity supply for the facilities, Fashola explained that “because of the sophistication in terms of the equipment, there will be need for alternative source of power”.
“More importantly, the visit is also to see how we can plan to power the infrastructure and connect them to the grid.
“The structural work and level of finish currently in place is satisfactory, and considering the important role the EFCC plays in the fighting economic and financial crimes, as well as being an institution ensuring law and order, the agency deserves the best”.
Fashola and his entourage were led round the facilities by Ibrahim Murtala, an architect and consultant with Julius Berger, the company handling the project.
Murtala assured that the building will be ready before the second quarter of the year.
