By Greenbarge Reporters: Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukayode, has said that corrupt political leaders have no tribe, religion but are bound together by their common greed.

Speaking at the first quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-religious Council (NIREC), Ola Olukayode said that the major problem militating against the development of Nigeria is corruption. “It’s a cankerworm that has eaten deep into the fabrics of the society with its attendant effects on the citizenry.”

Represented by the Commission’s Director of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwajaren, the EFCC Boss said: “when it comes to stealing the country’s wealth, the looters are united by their common greed. Their ethnic identities and religious backgrounds make no difference. Therefore, for the corruption fight to be meaningful, it must be waged on all fronts, drawing on our collective energies to defeat a common enemy.”
