EFCC deploys officers and releases numbers to report vote buying ahead of elections

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has deployed its officers to the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, to monitor the polls on Saturday, Feb. 25.

The anti-graft agency said the deployment is part of efforts to ensure the integrity of the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, charged the operatives to be conscious of the interest of the nation and to exhibit a high sense of professionalism in the discharge of duties.

Bawa said being on a national assignment, he expects them to act accordingly in line with the commission’s values of professionalism, integrity and courage.

The chairman noted that they have a responsibility to “ensure that the election is devoid of financial malpractices, especially inducement of voters”.

The EFCC also released incidents reporting hotlines for the 36 states and Abuja, urging citizens to report vote buying, selling, or other evidence of financial malpractices.

Members of the public can also report anyone trying to buy or sell votes by making use of the EFCC financial crimes reporting App, Eagle Eye.
