The Director-General of Nigerian Institute of Social and Economic Research NISER, Professor Anthonia Taiye Simbine has assured the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, of her unwavering support in the fight against economic and financial crimes.

She gave the assurance on Tuesday, May 21, 2024 when she paid a courtesy visit to the Ibadan Acting Zonal Director of the EFCC, Assistant Commander of EFCC,  ACE I Hauwa Garba Ringim.

While congratulating Ringim on her recent appointment as the new head of Ibadan office of the EFCC, the DG stated that, “NISER has been supportive of the EFCC’s mandate and I can assure the Director that NISER under my leadership will not stop extending hands of robust support to the essence of the EFCC.”

The DG emphasized the need for a deliberate and consistent collaboration between the two organizations, where fundamental issues advancing  the visions and mandates of both establishments are promoted.

“As government agencies, we must establish a healthy working relationship with relevant stakeholders, which is one of the major reasons my entourage and I embarked on this visit.

“We are aware that the EFCC cannot fight corruption alone, so we are willing to contribute our quota to bringing corruption, especially cybercrime to its knees in the Southwest and Nigeria at large”,  she said.

Furthermore, the DG said the Social Policy Department of her Institute was critically researching into how Nigerian youths can be fully engaged developmentally,  “which has to begin with ethical reorientation of our youths across board”.

She  called for “periodical training and re-training of professionals within the Commission via the facilities of NISER given the fact that the Institute is vested with the responsibility of conducting researches into social and economic problems of the country, for government at all levels, non-governmental organizations, private sector, international and multinational organizations.”

In her response, Ringim thanked Simbine for the visit and pledged her commitment to working with the DG to achieve success and effective economic growth in the country.

“I sincerely thank you for coming around today. Truly, it was thoughtful of you, seeing the necessity of strengthening the ties between the EFCC and NISER, so that we can both achieve our mandates and succeed together.
