Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has finalized plans to host a concert aimed at rallying the grassroots against voter’s inducement and raising the consciousness of Nigerians against various forms of money laundering activities.
According to Ibrahim Magu, acting Chairman of the Commission, the “Say No to Vote Buying” Concert, which will hold on January 13, 2019 at the Unity Fountain, Abuja, is part of the EFCC’s corruption prevention efforts, aimed at sensitizing the public against the ills of corruption.
The Concert, which is being organized in partnership with Olaranwaju Toriseju, popular comedian fondly referred to as Ambassador Wahala, will hold by 2pm, and will feature comedy by emerging comedians like Dr. Ayuba, Ghana Must Go, Koboko Master, Stainless, Washington, Mr Odey, MC 3310, Cee Dee, Charles Aworum, MC Philip, Asawana, Chucks D General, Nick B, Sam & Song, Funny Bruno, and music by Victor Velmo, Yung Fresh, Maisty Sanusi, Fortune Tunez, Braine and Magic Steppers. There will also be stage plays and talk shows.
The event, which promises to be an entertaining day of music, performances, drama skits, talk-shows and comedy, according to Magu, is “yet another preventive thrust of the EFCC towards engaging and enlightening the public, encouraging them to take ownership of the anti-corruption mandate as championed by President Muhammadu Buhari”.
