Falana stated this while speaking at a forum organized by the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL) in Lagos on Wednesday 19th April 2017.

The forum had the theme “Perpetual Hearings and Delayed Justice on Corruption Cases in Nigeria: Causes and Way-Forward”.

“The Federal Government has not funded the EFCC the way the commission should be funded. In fact, the funding is not even there at all.

“This government has spent about 2 billion dollars on the war against insurgency in the last two years but has not spent 2 million dollars on the fight against corruption, and yet we want the EFCC to be very effective.

“The fact is that fighting corruption is very expensive. Britain spent 2 million pounds just to prosecute and convict a former governor in Nigeria for corruption.

“So the EFCC needs funds to diligently investigate and prosecute corruption cases. The government should provide the wherewithal for the commission,“ he said.
