Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN), an Abuja based Civil Society Organization dedicated to advocating for integrity, justice, probity and transparency in public offices has hailed the Federal Government of Nigeria for appointing Evangelist Victor Uwajeh to serve as consultant to the Special Investigation Panel on the Recovery of Public Property chaired by the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecutions, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla.
The group said in a statement by its president Barrister Edward Omaga said, “No doubt, the choice of Evangelist Uwajeh to trace and recover undeclared assets as well as funds looted from government coffers goes to show that President Muhammadu Buhari, GCR is indeed resolute in his resolve to kill corruption before corruption kills Nigeria.
“The record we have of Evangelist Uwajeh depicts him as one of the finest Private Investigator around, In the past, Evangelist Uwajeh had brought his wealth of experience to bear in Nigeria when he was engaged by successive administrations to unravel numerous economic crimes involving high profile personalities and agencies.
“We understand that corrupt individuals both in public and private sectors of the economy will do everything possible to distract the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecutions, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla from maintaining focus and ridding our dear country of rot, corruption, misappropriation and waste.
“After all, it is no longer strange that when you fight corruption, corruption surely fights back. President Buhari must beware of some disgruntled politicians who are trying use the media to paint Evangelist Uwajeh in bad light within this period just to settle personal scores.
At GICN, we are willing to continually support the government in the fight against corruption, terrorism and economic sabotage. We therefore call on other sister Civil Society Organizations, people of good conscience and the international community to join hands with Mr. President as he strives to make Nigeria great again.
