In a bid to ensure seamless election and census activities in Borno State, Northwest Nigeria, in 2023, the new Commander, 7 Division Garrison, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General J. Ibrahim has appealed for sustainable synergy with the Borno State Command of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

Ibrahim appealed Tuesday, November 15, 2022, when he made a courtesy visitation to the Maiduguri Zonal Commander of the EFCC, Shuaibu Umar in his office.

The army officer remarked that the anti-graft agency is considered a strategic partner, adding that the Division looks forward to working with the Maiduguri Command of the EFCC especially in light of the forthcoming general elections and national census.

“I look forward to your enhancing my activities, especially in this period of electioneering and general census; so we have started early so that nothing takes us unawares,” he said.

In his response, Umar appreciated Garrison Commander for the visit and assured him of the full support of the EFCC at all times.

“There is a serious synergy between the two institutions and the visit can only strengthen that.

“Operationally, we have been working together in some areas in which the Nigerian Army gives support in terms of security cover during our activities,” he said

Nigeria will be having her general elections and national population census across the 36 States and federal capital territory in the council next year.
