President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Nuhu Ribadu for winning the Anti-Corruption Lifetime Achievement Award.
The President, in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, rejoiced with the pioneer chairman of the EFCC, noting that being one of eight recipients from five continents of various categories of the Award organized by the prestigious Sheikh Tamin Bin Hamad Al Thani International Anti-Corruption Excellence (ACE) Award 2018, during its Third annual ceremony in Malaysia on Friday, “is a rare privilege and acknowledgment of his fearless fight against corruption in his country.”
He urged the current leadership of the anti-corruption organisations in the country not to be deterred in the face of “corruption fighting back in different forms and shapes.”
President Buhari also enjoined all Nigerians in leadership positions to emulate Malam Ribadu and see public office “as a public trust.”
