As part of efforts to restructure and reposition the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to achieve its all important mandate, the agency’s Executive Chairman, Mr. Ola Olukoyede has appointed Mr. Michael Nzekwe as his Chief of Staff.

A statement on Saturday by the agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale said, the EFCC boss also appointed Zonal Directors for each of the 14 Zonal Commands of the Commission.

The statement said, Nzekwe, top notch investigator, lawyer and former Commander of the Ilorin Zonal Command of the EFCC, is a course one officer of the Commission.

The statement further said that he has served in various departments in the Commission, including Legal and Prosecution Department, Department of Operations (now Department of Investigations), Department of Internal Affairs (now Department of Ethics and Integrity), Servicom, and Asset Forfeiture Department.

It said, as a seasoned administrator, he has attended several trainings and courses home and abroad, including the Advance Defence Intelligence Officers Course organised by Defence Intel Agency, DIA, adding that the appointment takes immediate effect and he has assumed duties.

However, according to the statement, Olukoyede, in his restructuring and repositioning of the EFCC, equally upgraded all the Zonal Commands of the Commission to the status of Departments, with each of them headed by a Director.

To this effect, it said, “14 new Directors have been appointed to head each of the Zonal Commands.

“Additionally, to bolster and fortify the security architecture of the Commission, the Security Unit of the EFCC has been upgraded to a Department with a seasoned officer appointed as Director, Security and Chief Security Officer.

“A new Department has also been created in the Executive Chairman’s office and it is headed by former Makurdi Zonal Commander of the EFCC, Mr. Friday Ebelo who also doubles as Director and Coordinator, Special Duties at the corporate headquarters of the Commission.

“The former Department of Internal Affairs has been renamed Department of Ethics and Integrity and minor reshuffling effected in some Departments at the headquarters”, the statement said.

It quoted Olukoyede as saying that the ongoing restructuring was meant for the repositioning and strengthening of the EFCC to deliver on its assigned mandate optimally.
