Ibrahim Magu, acting EFCC Chairman has been bestowed with the award of Man of Valor by Global Peace Movement Initiative International (GPMII) in recognition of his dedication, commitment and doggedness in the fight against corruption.
President of the GPMII, Dr. Mike Uyi, who presented the award to Mr. Ibrahim Magu at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Headquarters on September 8, 2017, noted that the purpose of the award was to honour the EFCC boss for successfully leading the anti-corruption fight.
In the words of Dr. Mike Uyi:
“Magu has done excellently well, so far and he has changed the world’s perception about Nigeria as a very corrupt nation. One will think that he is a giant.
Looking at him now, one can clearly see that the might is not in appearance and in shape or in size, but it is in the act and actions. He has made Nigeria well respected in the world today.
A man who has the heart to face all kinds of storm.
Impunity has been stamped out with the name ‘Magu’. When you hear his name, you must look above your shoulder. He clearly stands outs and that is why we are here to honour him.
Magu has made Nigeria proud.”
While receiving the award, Mr. Ibrahim Magu pledged:
“The fight against corruption is for future generation. I will continue to fight corruption until my last second in office. I want to assure Nigerians that I will never disappoint them. We have the right leadership and I am very much motivated to do more. It is a total war.”
