He made the call on Monday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State at an interactive meeting with leaders of Civil Society Groups in Rivers and Bayelsa States. 
The EFCC boss also charged the leaders that they should be ready to serve as a bridge between the Commission and the larger public. He decried the rising rate of poverty within the South-South, noting that money meant for the development of the region is not being accounted for.
