The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied a report in today’s edition of Daily Sun, in which the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, was quoted as indicting the out-going Jonathan administration of poor performance and claiming that it hampered the Commission’s work by starving it of funds.

“The Commission takes exception to this report which is pure fabrication by the author for reason best known to him,” EFCC Head of Media Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement issued this afternoon in Abuja.

According to the statement, “In the first place, Lamorde who is currently out of the country did not speak with the media and could not have made the comments attributed to him by The Sun newspapers.

“The occasion that provided the basis for the false report by The Sun was a media briefing by Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, spokesperson of the EFCC, who addressed more than 40 journalists from over 30 media organisations at the Commission’s monthly media briefing in Abuja on May 25, 2015.

“At no time during the event did Uwujaren comment on the performance or lack of it, by the Jonathan administration let alone accusing it of poor performance or starving the Commission of funds.

“He was only asked a question on the Commission’s view on the focus which the in-coming Buhari administration places on the fight against corruption, to which he responded that the Commission, like most Nigerians who are bothered about the problem of corruption, welcomes the focus which he believes will further empower the EFCC in the pursuit of its mandate of fighting economic crimes and corruption.

“It is a great disservice to society when journalists fabricates and twist issues to serve motives that are not altruistic.”
