Nigerian Army trains EFCC drivers

The Nigerian Army School of Supply and Transport (NASST) has trained 197 drivers of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The passing out ceremony took place on Friday at the Muhammadu Buhari Auditorium of the school in Benin, the Edo capital.

EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, commended the Nigerian Army for allowing the commission to use their facility.

“You are delivering to us a group of disciplined drivers who will join us in achieving our vision of a Nigeria free of economic and financial crimes,” he said.

Bawa noted that the training was meant to address the operational gaps in the agency.

The anti-graft chief urged the staff to see their employment as an opportunity to serve their fatherland.

“Never see yourselves as just drivers but an important part of the system. No agency can function without everyone playing his part.”

Brigadier General U. T. Otaru, NASST Acting Commandant said the skills of the trainees had been improved to effectively function in the law enforcement environment.

The tutoring, the first of its kind in the history of the commission, commenced on July 25 and featured both theory and practical exercises.
