The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said the number of governors on its watchlist has increased.
EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, disclosed this while briefing news men at the State House after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, November 17.
Bawa, however, declined to mention the number of governors under surveillance or their names.
He said the proposal to redesign the naira is crucial in the nation’s fight against financial crime and other types of corruption.
According to him, “Let me use this opportunity to remind Nigerians that EagleEye is very important for those that are reporting the hoarders of these currencies that we know are out there
That is one. On the issue of the governors that we are monitoring, the numbers have increased. We are monitoring everything.
For politicians, the message is very clear. Of course, you know, they should sell themselves; they should talk about issues. We want to hear about how they are going to solve the problems, not what the problems are. I think it is very important and I think they are doing that.
And then of course, we encourage that they shouldn’t use illegitimate funds in their campaign finances and all of that.”
