As part of the on-going effort by the Commission to achieve its set goals as emphasized by President Muhammadu Buhari at the inauguration of the present Board, plans are on the way for close collaboration with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) aimed at monitoring and blocking revenue leakages of remittances to the Federation Account.

The Chairman of the Commission Engr. Elias Mbam stated this during a courtesy visit to the acting Chairman of EFCC Mr. Mohammed Umar in Abuja recently. He commended the efforts of the EFCC in its fight against corruption noting however that it should be a collective responsibility of every Nigerian which should be seen as a civic responsibility.

Mbam further stated that the timing of this collaboration couldn’t have been better citing the current dwindling revenue informed by the oil price dip and recent Corona Virus Pandemic. This he said will minimize revenue leakage and maximize remittance of accrued revenue to Government.

In his reaction, the Acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr. Mohammed Umar thanked the Chairman and Members of RMAFC present for their visit and readiness to partner with the EFCC in its fight against corruption in the aspect of revenue leakages. He promised full collaboration with the RMAFC in this regard while requesting for specific areas of concentration in the working synergy.
