  1. Good job EFFC keep doing your fine work but I just wish this money been recover back can be release or disbursed for the masses to help them find their in this economic hardship we are currently going through in this country

  2. This is what happen in my country imaging the kind of wickedness just for personal use that is why they deduct such amount aside and suffer many people as a result of their selfishness.

  3. Money made to cater for all these items was embezzled by evil people we have in this country. The corp members suffered, some lost their lives during voting yet their money was not paid to them. They should punish those criminals well.

  4. Those criminals should be brought to book. My pain is when they will be released we common citizens will not hear about it. But commoners will commit lesser crime than this and they will be killed. God please help us in this Country.
