Earlier in his speech, Olukoyede applauded the Police for nurturing the EFCC from infancy and expressed delight with the existing synergy between the two Agencies.
“We are proud of the nurturing we received from the Police and solicit more support, cooperation and collaboration given the specialized nature of our works”, he said.
