While appealing for the anti-graft assistance against the forgery of its certificates by unscrupulous individuals and companies, Otokito appreciated the efforts of the EFCC in the fight against corruption, economic and financial crimes.

“People are tempted to compromise and that is why we are here at the anti-graft agency. Instead of following the due process, contractors resort to cutting corners, forging our certificates to fetch themselves contracts. The EFCC has been doing excellent work in the anti-corruption fight and I think you have to come in and look at this area and see how you can
help prosecute these individuals,” he said.
