Update on the sack of efcc boss,Farida Waziri

The  reason for the sack of the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Boss, Mrs Farida Waziri has began to unfold. International anti-grafts agencies were beginning to doubt the efficiency of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in fighting crimes and corruption in Nigeria, especially the crack-down of the sponsors of the boko haram sects.

Nigeria is viewed by the international anti-graft agencies as playing politics in the fight against  corruption.

Ibrahim Larmode is the new acting chairman of the Economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC). Sources said the anti-graft war  needs re-vitalization as Nigeria is a focal point in the international community. The removal of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mrs Farida Waziri is in the economic’s best interest.

The appointment takes immediate effect and effectively relieves Mrs Farida Waziri of her position as EFCC chairman. Mrs Waziri was appointed EFCC chairman by the late President Umaru Yar’Adua on May 18,  2008 and confirmed by the Senate on May 27, 2008.”

It described Lamorde as an officer of the Nigeria Police who was, until this appointment, the Director of Operations of the EFCC.

He had also acted as chairman of the EFCC before Waziri assumed duty at the commission in May 2008.
