SERVICOM urges strategic collaboration with EFCC


National Coordinator of SERVICOM, Mrs Nnenna Akajemeli, has called for more strategic collaboration with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to improve the standard of services in the commission.

Akajemeli made this call when she paid an advocacy visit to the commission’s headquarter over the weekend in Abuja.

She stated that the visit was to look at the three key areas of services in the commission, which are investigation, prevention, legal and prosecution services that are citizen – focused and would match up with the expectations and needs of the people.

According to a press statement issued by SERVICOM public affairs unit, “beyond these standards, expectations are a key to quality service delivery of a Nation. She advised the Chairman to set up an anti – corruption crusade at the secondary schools to render preventive services in the near future.”

The statement quoted Mrs Akajemeli as calling on the EFCC boss to strategically position himself to stamp out corruption in the system and to streamline his service charter to measureable standards that can be more accessible to the public.

With this, she said, “we can meet and exceed services, when this is achieved we can sustain synergy and service improvements in line with SERVICOM’s mandate through staff capacity building.”

She advised also the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss to develop a frame work that would improve standards of service delivery in the commission.

This collaboration, she said, would add more value to the nation.

In his welcome remarks, the Chairman of EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, stated that the commission has a Standards Operating Procedures (SOPs) being digitalized for forensic investigators in the commission.

He further stated that, “Nigerians have to follow the system of digitalization of our process and procedures, so as to enable the commission to reduce high level of crime rates to the barest minimum.”

He further stated that, the commission is working assiduously to ensure that services rendered are at per with international best practices.
