Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC says it has stepped up surveillance mechanisms to clamp down on activities of money racketeers to ensure seamless implementation of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN policy on the redesigning of the 200,500 and 1000 Naira notes.
Chairman of the EFCC Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa gave this indication during the passing out ceremony of 2022 Course 3 of Detective Assistant Cadets of the commission at the Mobile Police Training College, Endehu Hill in Nasarawa State.
The passing out parade of the 2022 Course three of Detective Assistant Cadets of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC was to mark the end of a six months training of the new intakes and to formally receive them into the commission.
Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa, said the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN policy on redesigning the nation’s currency was well intended in good conscience to improve the economy and instil discipline in the financial sector.
He called on Nigerians to embrace the policy given its long and short-term benefits and work closely with security agencies to expose individuals or groups who indulge in perpetrating activities aimed at sabotaging its implementation.
The EFCC Chairman explained that the new intakes of the Detective Assistant Cadets were made up of secondary school leavers to provide backup security to the commission.
The overall best graduating Detective Assistant Cadet, Danmaigoro Awwal Sulyman who spoke on behalf of his colleagues stated that the training had equipped them to tackle financial crimes and insecurity.
Commandant of the Mobile Police Training College Endehu Deputy Commissioner of Police Dabigi Ali said the 305 Detective Assistant Cadets of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission were exposed to intensive combat training, forensics and ICT as well as legal and financial studies.
