Ola Olukoyede, Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has disclosed that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu warned him that he was about to embark on a risky job.
The anti-graft agency boss said Tinubu gave him the warning before his appointment.
He stated this during a courtesy visit to the Emir of Ilorin, Dr Ibrahim Sulu Gambari at his palace on Thursday.
Olukoyede said: “During my screening at the Senate, I told the entire nation that I am going to face a three-point agenda and I want to assure your royal highness that with these points, the EFCC will continue to serve the nation better without any intimidation or course to affect the operation of any legitimate business.
He added, “Before I was appointed the EFCC Chairman, President Tinubu told me that this appointment that I was about to take, is one of the riskiest jobs that anybody can take.
“I replied to him that it wouldn’t be hard because I am going to be guided by the rule of law and ethics of the profession.
