The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was on Thursday, commended for its dedication to the cause of fighting economic and financial crimes in Nigeria

The newly appointed State Coordinator of the Legal Aid Council of Nigeria, Kaduna State, Hajia Rabi Ibrahim Abdullahi, gave the commendation during a familiarisation visit to the Kaduna Zonal Command of the Commission.

In her words, “this kind of job is tedious because of the emerging trends we see these days yet the Commission remains resolute in carrying out its duties professionally as we see on a daily basis”.

She reassured the EFCC of the Council’s readiness in ensuring that the Commission gets all the support it needs especially in areas of prosecution of our cases before the Court of law.

Responding, the Zonal Commander, Harry Erin expressed delight that the Commission is being appreciated for its modest contributions to national development.

He expressed confidence that continuous collaboration with the Legal Aid Council will avail defendants equal access to justice.

He added that a closer relationship must be sustained in order to collectively ensure that defendants in court have legal representation.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
