The Chief Executive Officer of MTN Nigeria, Karl Toriola, has called for the strengthening of the existing collaboration with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in tackling computer-related fraud in the country.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the Lagos Zonal Head of the EFCC, Ahmed Ghali,  on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, Toriola thanked the EFCC for the opportunity to meet minds on some vital issues affecting both organizations, adding that “The most important part of my role as a CEO is stakeholders’ management and to support government agencies, especially security agencies.”

Toriola affirmed that the MTN could be helpful to the activities of the EFCC and also pledged the company’s continous assistance to the Commission.

In his response, Ghali who described the visit as a long-awaited one, expressed readiness to build on the existing relationship with MTN.

Ghali, who also sought timely and comprehensive responses to EFCC requests, added that “there is no room for complacency.”

He, therefore, urged the telecommunication company to continue to support the ongoing war against cybercrime in the country.
