Egmont to decide Nigeria’s fate on March 11
 
In spite of the dread being communicated by a few people and gatherings that the Egmont Group may soon hatchet Nigeria from its overlay because of finding its Financial Intelligence Unit inside the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Federal Government gives off an impression of being measuring choices on the most ideal approach all together not to play under the control of the universal monetary guard dog office. Executive of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu The national government is of the supposition that it is smarter to leave the NFIU inside the EFCC and make it more autonomous and secure instead of building up another office that may not be acknowledged by the Egmont Group.

 As of now, the March 11, 2018 due date for Nigeria to offer some kind of reparation and report back to the office is just seven days from either being ousted or gambling delayed suspension from the gathering. In any case, as the due date moves closer, an authority of the national government disclosed to Vanguard the previous evening that it was off base to state that Egmont suspended Nigeria since its NFIU was situated inside EFCC. "In all actuality Egmont assemble just raised a few worries about a few worries in connection to EGMONT Group's standards and rules and all that is required for Nigeria to do in this circumstance is to address the issues entirely as watched and fuse the things as showed as lacking in the EFCC Act, by method for the entry of the EFCC Amendment bill and answer to the office," a government official called attention to on Thursday.

 "I can reveal to you that if this is done and which is all well and good, the suspension by Egmont Group will naturally be lifted at the same entire without response to some other issue. "Bu if Nigeria tows the line generally not recommended by the EGMONT Group and chooses to make another FIU, as being proposed in the NFIA charge and migrates the FIU to the Central Bank or some other substance, the EGMONT Group will consider this as a major change in the structure of the FIU, the resultant impact will be a programmed removal, which will additionally subject Nigeria to the procedure of reapplication for enrollment, under the updated EGMONT Group participation method received in 2014. 

"Review that it took the NFIU a time of two years to finish up its unique enrollment application with the present prerequisites for participation as unwieldy as there are currently, for Nigeria to recapture participation, it will take an expected time of three years. "As I would see it, setting up another FIU finding it outside the EFCC would result to a circumstance that will exasperate the present circumstance which the NFIU is looking in the EGMONT Group. "The bill proposing the revision of the EFCC Act which has tended to the worries of the EGMONT Group has been submitted to the EGMONT Group Membership Support and Compliance Working Group and it has mentioned its objective facts and prompted that a few arrangements contained in the EFCC Amendment charge be made clearer. 

"It will in this manner be ludicrous to submit to the EGMONG Group an altogether unique law for thought, as against what is now before them. Any endeavor to do this won't just disparagement Nigeria before the universal group, yet Nigeria will be seen as an exceptionally unserious, questionable and unmoved nation. "The Germany experience should manage our choice. The German FIU was removed from the Egmont Group in January 2017 in light of the fact that there was a basic change in its structure by migrating the FIU from the German Police to the Customs.
