International partners of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission yesterday joined the chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, to unveil the commission’s Strategic Plan (2021-2025) targeted at improving its performance.

The plan, designed in line with the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (2017-2021), according to a statement by the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, is aimed at increasing public engagement in the fight against economic and financial crimes; improving systems and processes for the prevention of economic and financial crimes; improving intelligence-driven investigation, prosecution and asset recovery; improving law enforcement coordination and collaboration with relevant stakeholders; and enhancing institutional capacity and human capital.

The EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, in his opening address, said the commission recognised the importance of partnership with the public in achieving its mandate.

“This is demonstrated in our commitment to continuous improvement and strengthening cooperation with all stakeholders consistent with objective 4 of the Strategic Plan”.

According to him, the new plan prioritizes prevention as a cheaper and more efficient tool against economic and financial crimes than enforcement.

The plan also places a significant premium on intelligence-driven investigation, prosecution and asset recovery while upholding high ethical standards in the discharge of the commission’s mandate.

“Effective implementation of this Plan shall improve operational efficiency in the Commission and ensure that we continue to aspire to our vision of a Nigeria free of economic and financial crimes,” he said.

Bawa appreciated the partners (US Embassy, INL, FBI, BHC, NCA, FCDO, German BKA and UNODC).
