Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has called for measures to make the anti corruption war of the federal government more effective and ensure the safety of Nigerians in midst of security threat.
Obasanjo spoke on Saturday in Abeokuta, Ogun statethreat gathering to mark his 79th birthday during which many eminent Nigerians eulogised him.
The ex-President who took a brief look at what used to be the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) under the Pioneer, Mr Nuhu Ribadu, and what it is today, concluded regrettably that the Anti – graft agency has become a “toothless bull – dog.”
He explained that there was the need to do an appraisal to know why the EFCC which was dreaded because of its effectiveness during his administration, began to lose courage.
According to him, the appraisal is crucial so that the nation does not take one step forwards and take three steps backward.
