Nigeria has indicated readiness to join the membership of the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) on money laundering and terrorism financing.

Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, made the disclosure to the intergovernmental Action Group Against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA).

A statement on Saturday by his spokesman, Umar Gwandu, provided details of the meeting.

Malami said the Nigerian Financial Intelligent Unit had issued an Executive Alert to all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA) for FATF implementation.

The minister thanked the watchdog, GIABA and member states for reviewing and adopting the just-concluded 2nd Mutual Evaluation Report (MER) of Nigeria.

The senior advocate assured that the country was prepared to commit to all measures against addressing money laundering and terrorism financing.

Requesting GIABA’s support, Malami said once the evaluation of the MER is concluded, Nigeria will commence the application for FATF membership.
