The Managing Director, News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Bayo Onanuga, has expressed the readiness of the agency to further support the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in its fight against corruption.

Speaking during a courtesy visit on the acting chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, Onanuga stated that the agency would do much more than it had done in the past years to proclaim the Commission’s activities.

According to him, ‘‘The News Agency of Nigeria will continue to disseminate information about the activities of the EFCC.’’

Responding, Magu, who expressed his appreciation for the visit, stated that the media was crucial to creating awareness on the evil of corruption.

He said: “The work we do cannot be done alone; everyone is a stakeholder, irrespective of age. We cannot claim to have monopoly of knowledge and that is why we try to get relationships with all stakeholders. Without the media, the fight against corruption cannot be won.’’

Magu further added that he welcomed criticism that could enable the Commission achieve its statutory objectives.
