Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, dismissing criticisms trailing the anti-graft agency's new head office building which cost the Federal Government the sum of N24 billion.

"Are you saying that N24 billion is too much for this edifice? Then you must be joking. Do you know what we have here, just because we procure most of the equipment? If you go and ask any other valuer, they
will charge you more than N100 billion. Go and see the transformers and the clinic alone, other persons could have used more than N24 billion. "I am telling you that before you get a property like this, people would ask you for five times the price we used. If you like, you can go round the whole country, but you cannot get a property of this magnitude for N24 billion. "With the relocation to a more befitting office, the EFCC will be adopting a winning formula in its anti-corruption drive. We have relocated, so we are going to change strategy. We will fight it to the extent that you will be satisfied that we have fought enough." ● PULSE ■
