The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, says the commission will work to strengthen existing collaboration with the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) on cyber security studies.
A statement by EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren said Bawa made the commitment when the Commandant of AFIT, AVM Olugbeji Jemitola, visited the Commission in Abuja.
The EFCC boss, who spoke through the commission’s Secretary, Dr. George Ekpungu, said they were ready to deepen the existing relationship between them. He said that modalities would be put in place for the full operationalization of the Memorandum of Understanding earlier signed by the two organizations.
Earlier, Jemitola appreciated the EFCC for offering teaching and internship opportunities to the institute’s cyber security students.
“I also want to express our gratitude to the Commission, because when we conducted our staff audit, the EFCC assisted us in the verification of some of the staff with respect to their qualifications,” he added.
He said that the visit was to get the EFCC involved in hosting a conference on cyber security being organized by the institute and on manpower development.
