ASSESSMENT OF ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS OF ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC) IN COMBATING FINANCIAL CRIMES IN NIGERIA, 2003-2012

By Akume, Albert. Terkula

The pervasiveness of economic and financial crimes in Nigeria has permitted the flourishing of all forms of informal economic activities that are both illegal and unprofitable to the Nigerian state. Hence, since its establishment, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been accused of being ineffective in curbing financial crimes. This informed the need for its assessment from 2003 to 2012. The evident absence of empirical works that assessed the organizational effectiveness of the EFCC is the gap in literature this study filled. The specific objectives of the study were to: (i) determine if EFCC’s internal processes have bolstered its organizational effectiveness to combat economic and financial crimes in Nigeria, (ii) ascertain if EFCC’s organizational resources’ configuration have facilitated its effectiveness in combating economic and financial crimes in Nigeria, and (iii) identify if environmental factors have facilitated or hampered EFCC’s effectiveness in combating economic and financial crimes in Nigeria. The study utilized the evaluation and survey designs. The study population was 3000 respondents. This study used the judgmental and snowball sampling technique to select 341 respondents from the estimated population.
