Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Lamorde, has said it is near impossible for the agency to fight corruption with a staff strength of less than 3,000 in a nation of 160 million people.

Lamorde said this in an address during the distribution of a book, The Monster Called Corruption and the Monkey Leaders, jointly produced by the EFCC and the Universal Basic Education Commission, in Abuja, on Thursday.

He said the anti-corruption agency had been paying  emphasis on prevention through enlightenment and education of Nigerians.

Lamorde, who was represented by a senior official of the commission, Mr. David Tukura, said the anti-graft war could only be won when every Nigerian was brought on board.

He  said, “Corruption is indeed a scourge, we have to combat it. To this end, public enlightenment is critical to the success in the fight against corruption, hence the engagement of schools at all levels.”

Minister of State for Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, who was represented by the Executive Secretary of UBEC, Ahmed Modibo, said there was a need for greater transparency in the UBEC process aimed at improving access and quality of education.

Wike said enlightenment and education on anti-corruption for students would improve on their personal knowledge and encourage them to serve as whistle blowers on people involved in anti-social activities.
