The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) claims that both Muslims and Christians are to blame for the country’s corruption problem.

The EFCC’s chairman, Ola Olukoyede, made the announcement at a two-day workshop on increasing fiscal discipline in local government management, hosted by the Kaduna State Ministry of Local Government.

Olukoyede stated that the fight against corruption is a collective battle for Nigeria’s spirit, and that corruption knows no color, ethnicity, or religion.

The EFCC czar, who was represented by the EFCC Zonal Commander, ACE Aisha Abubakar, asked the local government to back President Bola Tinubu’s anti-corruption effort.

He noted that the local government tier, being the government nearest to the populace, is one of the best agencies that can drive the much-needed wider participation of the local population in the anti-corruption campaign.

“Let me stress here, that corruption has no colour, no tribe and religion. The people that steal Nigeria’s resources are both Christians and Muslims. It is not a battle between religions; corruption fight is also not between tribes,” he said according to Leadership.

“What we are fighting in this country is a battle between good and evil; it is a collective battle for the soul of Nigeria; a battle for the future generation of yet unborn Nigerians; it is indeed, the battle for the future of Africa.”
