Abstract

The issue of economic growth and development in Africa is as much revered as it is maligned and as such is never far away from the headlines. However, economic corruption remains undoubtedly at large. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)-tasked with tackling corruption and fraud in Nigeria- has been effective in curbing this plight in the most populated country in the continent.Its success in doing so beg the question of why efforts have not been made by the International community to create an African model which will prosecute financial crimes from political and bureaucratic figures.
