Addressing the media in Abuja on Friday, the Group Executive Director Media and Publicity Comrade Taiwo Adeniran, said that the tools of the graft agency should be used for what is in the interest of the nation and not to be used to intimidate, oppress, embarrass or to serve as a payback time to citizens that have distinguished themselves while in public office in the verge to serve their fatherland.

The statement read partially “We have it on good grounds the committed effort put in place for the recovery of funds stolen and prosecution of looters and the ongoing activities of the EFCC, to ensure all diverted public funds are recovered.

“TADI as an advocate for good governance, transparency and probity would continue to give the agency the necessary support to attain its objectives of sanitizing the nation’s public offices.

“We want to draw the attention of the New EFCC boss to ensure he and his team avoid being used to intimidate and embarrass citizens instead of doing due diligence to sustain the reputation and dignity of the commission.

“On the current exercise of the commission and effort to recover public funds diverted to private accounts by some enemies of the state.

“We also called on the media to do due diligence in reportage and balancing of information at their disposal for national unity and peaceful co-existence of Nigerians.
