He noted that the collaboration between the military and EFCC in the training of cadets is yielding results in the fight against corruption.

The Acting Chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu in his speech noted that it was the strongest motivation to the commission and its officers to have the president attend the event.

Magu stated that ”corruption is worse than any disease therefore its elimination is of paramount importance to the growth of the nation.”

He therefore called on all Nigerians to take ownership of the fight against corruption, for it is a national responsibility.

The collaboration between the military and the EFCC has resulted in NDA so far training nearly 700 officers of the anti-graft commission.
