The Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to check the activities of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Kogi State Chairman of NUJ, Comrade Adeiza Momohjimoh, made the call in Lokoja on Thursday.

Delivering his welcome address at The NUJ Symposium, Momohjimoh urged Federal Government to call EFCC to order and stay within the precinct of the law in the discharge of its assignment.

He stated that EFCC fixation on Kogi state government and some individuals in the state is making mockery of the agency’s mandate of fighting corruption in Nigeria.

People are beginning to believe that the motive of the agency’s operation in Kogi is that of witch-hunt and political vendetta.

“This distraction is not only unnecessary, but also aimed at putting the development in the state to anticlockwise movement,” he said.

The National President of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Comrade Chris Isiguzo, endorsed the position of Kogi state chairman of the union.

In his goodwill address, Isiguzo affirmed his support for Kogi NUJ’s position on EFCC’s activities.
