Moghalu: No Police Officer Will Head EFCC When I Become President

Kingsley Moghalu, the Presidential candidate of Young Progressives Party (YPP) has informed of its intention to appoint a non-police head of Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission if elected President in 2019.
Moghalu, in an exclusive interview with a media personality, Fredrick Nwabufo on Thursday said the present administration was not fighting corruption but rather fighting political opponents.
“My fight against corruption will begin inside my government, not with the PDP and APC. I will set the EFCC free. And I believe that it should be merged with the ICPC into one body, and we will change the leadership criteria for heading that body. It doesn’t have to be a policeman. What makes policemen better than anyone else?
Moghalu maintained that the biggest problem confronting Nigeria ”is the total absence of leadership saying if elected, he will fight corruption by addressing the value system issues with impartial accountability.
“There is no fight against corruption, but there is a fight about fighting corruption. That fight is the pretence about fighting corruption. It is a fight against political opponents by pretending they are corrupt and you are not.
“A good leader will fight corruption as a natural path of the process of good governance, because one of the requirements of good governance is transparency; another requirement of good governance is accountability. So, you cannot fight corruption if you are not addressing the value system issue, and if you don’t have impartial accountability. He said
