Ministers - EFCC Moves Against Corrupt Politicians

23 June 2011

Abuja — ECONOMIC and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday, stepped up efforts to stop corrupt politicians from getting into President Goodluck Jonathan's next cabinet even as some powerful presidential aides were said to be pushing for the inclusion of former ministers in the list.

Presidency sources said that many of the politicians who were either facing corruption charges or had been indicted would be removed, if President Jonathan accepts the recommendations of the security agencies that have been screening the prospective appointees since last week.
