The Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has charged auctioneers in the country to be guided by probity, fairness and accountability in assets disposal.
A statement by EFCC spokesperson, Mr Dele Oyewale, disclosed that Olukoyede said this when he received a delegation of the National Association of Auctioneers, NAA, on Monday in Abuja.
He admonished the auctioneers to always operate in accordance with the extant rules and moral high ground for better service delivery to the nation.
“Probity, fairness and accountability are the core values that drive our work in the commission. I can therefore, say that we are together in the war against corruption,” he said.
According to him, the visit has shown the good relationship between the Commission and the group, assuring that the relationship would be sustained.
“We are committed to your success and we can work together to pursue the goal of making Nigeria better for all of us.
“We have up to 18 members of your group working with us hand-in-hand within the disposal of assets that have been forfeited to the government. And, they are doing creditably well,” he said.
