In a statement, the Team Leader of the group, Ibrahima Yakubu, said civil society groups must strengthen their support towards the fight for the anti corruption bodies to succeed.

Mr. Yakubu lauded efforts of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in combatting corrupt practices within the country.
