The Senate has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of not complying with the process of getting funds from the Service-Wide Votes.

The anti-graft body is presenting a budget proposal of 17.2 billion Naira for 2017, representing an 8.5% decrease from that of 2016.

And appearing before the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crime to defend his agency’s 2017 budget, Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, told the lawmakers that the agency secured an additional N1.8b from the Service-Wide Votes.

But Senator Chukwuka Utazi, chairman of the committee, expressed displeasure at the EFCC for failing to inform lawmakers of the extra budgetary allocation.
