ACTING Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has alleged that some state governors covertly promote insecurity as justification to inflate their security vote.’

Magu who stated this while presenting a paper with the theme, “Imperative of Fighting Corruption/Terrorism Financing in Nigeria” at the induction of new and returning governors at the Old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja, said he was not going into debate on the constitutionality of security vote.

He stated that Nigeria’s failure to take full advantage of its natural resources could also be attributed to corruption as public office holders are in the habit of constantly pillaging public resources

He further advised that the governors must be conscious of transparency in the expenditure of public funds.
