Nduese Essien, former Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to fight corruption by also watching those in the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He made the statement while addressing journalist in Ekets, Akwa Ibom state on Tuesday.
Essien also called on the anti-graft agency to account for the monies so far recovered from suspected looters in the country.
The former minister said if the monies recovered from looters are properly accounted for by the EFCC, it would help promote transparency and accountability.
”The monies recovered from people’s homes do not have effect on the economy of the country because, we have had reports of discoveries of monies but after such reports, we are not told of what happened to the monies so recovered.
”We expect that such monies when uncovered, should be accounted for by the anti-corruption agency.
”Government should not only tackle corruption involving those who have been in government taking a good chunk of money,
”But, should also battle and watch those who are currently in office, so that we do not end up recovering money again when they are no more in office,” he said.
