THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has said that it is awaiting the reports of the investigations being carried out by the National Assembly, before taking any action on its probe into the oil sector and the fuel subsidy regime .
Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Lamorde, stated this at a meeting with a Coalition of Civil Society Organisations,(CSOs) led by African Network for Environment and Economic Justice, (ANEEJ) yesterday in Abuja. The CSOs were on a courtesy call to the agency.
Lamorde, who said that EFCC was ready to partner the CSOs in its effort to investigate the oil sector, made it clear that the agency would not sponsor any organisation.
