EFCC officials take oath of ‘secrecy’ not to leak confidential documents

Members of staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday took a fresh oath of allegiance, swearing not to leak official documents and information.

According to a statement signed by the anti-graft agency’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, the oaths were administered to the staff in line with the Official Secrets Act and the newly adopted Document Classification Policy of the commission.

The statement also noted that the staff pledged among others, to perform their duties diligently and honestly.

“As part of ongoing reform efforts to improve efficient delivery of its mandate, officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today May 18, 2021 took fresh official oaths, pledging among others, to perform their duties diligently and honestly.
