The Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa and the Managing Director of NIGCOMSAT Dr. Abimbola Alale reached this understanding when the latter visited the EFCC Headquarters on Thursday.
Dr. Alale, who said the visit was to expand the existing partnership between the two agencies, presented through the Special Projects Officer, Morakinyo Akinola, a bouquet of services by the agency, which she believes would add value to the work of the EFCC.
According to her, NIGCOMSAT thrives on seamless communications through innovation and “provides channels and broadband connections to be able to transmit virtual data in a secure and comfortable way.”
She went ahead to offer a panoply of solutions that she believes would assist the EFCC.
Alale expressed the hope that EFCC would avail itself of these services to become the number one client of NIGCOMSAT.
Impressed by the presentation, the EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa noted that most of the propositions from NIGCOMSAT were issues already being considered by the Commission.
He emphasized the importance of collaboration between government agencies.
“We have 15 zonal offices, we should be able to search for any officer at any time in any of the zones; we should have a web-based technology to track attendance also”
While calling on NIGCOMSAT to join the anti-corruption fight, the EFCC boss stated that “you know what we do which is to rid the country of economic and financial crimes but we are not angels and so we need information from everybody; NIGCOMSAT can provide us with such service”
