Many Nigerians were puzzled by Wednesday’s launch of the Eagle Eye App by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
According to the EFCC this app is the first of its kind. It was created to make reporting financial and economic crimes easier in Nigeria.
How the Eagle Eye App works
Abdulrasheed Bawa (Executive Chairman of the Commission) stated in a statement that the app was user-friendly and can be used by anyone who is literate.
* Eagle Eye is an easy-to-use application with many features that anyone can use.
* Download the app to your device first from the Apple or Google Playstore.
* Those who wish to gain access to the Whistle Blowing Policy and receive a reward for reporting corruption should provide the necessary information.
* The law clearly outlines the penalties for providing false information that could mislead Commission.
They are saying this
Abdulrasheed Bawa, Chairman of the EFCC, described the app’s development as a result of ingenuity and creativity by staff members of the Commission. It was designed and developed by EFCC. He said that the initiative was a demonstration of his promise to lead a technology-driven agency when he assumed office.
