The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is has resolved to extend its searchlight to political parties to stop them from further corrupting politics with money.

As the 2019 general elections get closer, EFCC is taking steps to stop money sharing at conventions of political parties.

The Chairman of the anti-graft body, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said EFCC is working with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stop politicians from sharing money at party conventions or at polling centres.

According to Punch, Magu unveiled his new anti-corruption shift, during “Question Time’’, a life programme of Channels Television.

“We are working with INEC to make sure that we seal every window, and every leakage before the election.

“We will block any avenue where people can move a lot of money either physically in cash or through banks.

“We will prevent people from using money to buy votes or use money during conventions for delegates. We have machinery in place.”
