The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has acknowledged its receipt of the report of the House of Representatives Committee inquiry into the Federal Government Petroleum Products Subsidy programme.
The Commission, in a press release signed by Wilson Uwajaren, its acting head media, confirmed that it received the report on Thursday and promised that it will deal with anybody found culpable in the report, according to the law.
“The Commission wishes to commend the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives for making the document available. EFCC will study the report and use the House findings supported by evidences, along with the Commission’s own painstaking criminal investigation, to build a watertight case that will stand the test of rigorous prosecution against those found wanting.
“EFCC wishes to reiterate that anyone, individual or group found to have engaged in criminal manipulation of the subsidy regime would be dealt with in accordance with the law,” said the commission.
