A Nigerian man took to social media to make an unusual request from the EFCC, as he urged the anti-graft agency to set up a business for him.
He said he needed the cash so he doesn’t turn into a life of crime.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud and money laundering.
A young man identified as Suleiman Usman Chakams asked the anti-graft agency for money to start up his own business.
He made the unusual request in response to a post by EFCC, where it asked for open interaction with Nigerians on Facebook.
He wrote; ”Dear EFCC, kindly help me with capital I want to start business, I didn’t intend to be a bad boy that’s why I am asking for this favor.”
In response to Suleiman’s plea, EFCC explained that once it successfully tackles the challenge of corruption, unemployment would no longer be an issue for Nigerian youths.
”The mandate of the EFCC is to fight economic and financial crimes. When you join in this fight, then the issue of unemployment would be a thing of the past; and Nigeria would be a better place for us all,” the agency wrote.
