[Abuja]– Mr. Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has said that the battle against corruption in the country is a fight to finish.

Mr. Magu, whose nomination was rejected by the Senate for the second time, said this while addressing a coalition of civil society groups at the entrance to the National Assembly after his screening, yesterday.

He said that neither the Senate rejection nor report from the Department of State Security (DSS) can stop him from continuing the fight against corruption until his last day in office, adding that he doubted the authenticity of the report from the DSS indicting him and accusing him of lacking integrity to head the anti corruption agency.

According to him, “my priority is to fight corruption. My confirmation has not changed anything. We have always been on duty I will work until the last day whether confirmation or no confirmation.”

“The greatest violation against human right is crime against the society and the humanity but everybody has a duty and responsibility to fight corruption and I also has a responsibility. I assure you that we will fight to finish.”

“We will never be deterred because what we are doing is trying to investigate what has gone before and protect the future of our children and our future generation. So, if we don’t work today and fight against corruption, the future is not guaranteed, the future of our children is not guaranteed.”

“So, we must wake up, where ever you find yourself, fight corruption. Anytime you discover that I am corrupt, expose me”, he said.
