Nigerians abroad who intend to do business locally have been assured of the protection of their investment against local fraudsters
Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu, gave the assurance on Saturday, May 23, 2020 during a Virtual Town Hall Meeting with Nigerians in Diaspora.
The meeting was anchored in London by Prince Ade Omole.
Magu noted that the commission would deal with local fraudsters who frustrate diasporans from investing in Nigeria.
Magu told Nigerians in Diaspora that the anti-graft agency was aware of their frustration, uncertainties and risks posed by local fraudsters.
“The EFCC is ready to offer intelligence services to anyone seeking genuine business partners in Nigeria”
The EFCC boss said “more profiles of potential business partners in Nigeria would be obtained and delivered to the foreign- based investors and this would assist them in taking decisions on whom to partner with locally.
We can also offer intelligence on any line of business desired by the Nigerian in the Diaspora. We are ready to do all these to encourage credible and serious investors who do not want to be defrauded by fraudsters at home”.
“Magu charged Nigerians in the Diaspora to avail themselves of these opportunities and bring more investments into the local economy.
He also tasked them to support the anti- graft war, by exposing foreign assets of local politicians by taking advantage of the government’s whistle- blowing policy,”.
