The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu on Monday met with elder statesman, Yusuf Maitama Sule, in Abuja.

The meeting which lasted nearly one hour, according to a source in attaendance, saw the former minister lavishing praises on the EFCC boss for revving up the anti-corruption campaign in the country.

Mr. Sule was quoted as saying he was fully in support of the activities of the Commission and urged Mr. Magu not to be distracted by the antics of critics.

“You are doing very well.  Please remain focused and I am confident that you will go far,” the former minister was quoted as saying.

Mr. Sule was Nigeria’s former representative to the United Nations, and later Minister of National Guidance, a portfolio designed to assist then President Shehu Shagari in tackling corruption.

He was the pioneer Federal Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission, and is well regarded for his oratory and wisdom.
