“I want to appreciate you for making this exercise a success, I congratulate the winners, I want to also ask them to cooperate by making payments before 15 days, else we will give it to the next highest bidders. As for the ones we couldn’t conclude today, we will get back to the public on our decision on them, thank you,”,he said.

One of the winners, Henry Udeme, commended the Commission. “The exercise today is commendable, I have been coming here since last week to represent my boss but we won today. I like the fact that it is transparent, I want the EFCC to extend this transparency to help other areas of Nigeria because so many people are looking up to the Commission. Keep up the good work”, he said.
