EFCC Denies Receiving N10 Million Donation from Ganduje

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied receiving N10 million donation from Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
The EFCC Acting Head, Media and Publicity, Mr Tony Orilade, said in Abuja on Tuesday that the story was false and a deliberate attempt to malign the efforts of the Commission in the fight against corruption.
He said it is a tradition that the EFCC does not receive donations from state governors or government or any individual at that.
“The EFCC, as a reputable anti-graft agency is sponsored by the Federal Government through budgetary allocation and in some cases, foreign organisations in terms of capacity building.
He said while “it is true that the Commission in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes (ICPC) and the Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN) and other stakeholders is organising the first National Anti-Corruption Marathon…….” but the EFCC never received personal donation from anyone ahead of the marathon.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no state governor or some other individual or group has donated any amount of money to the EFCC to carry out the Anti-corruption Marathon project or any other project for that matter,” Orilade said.
