Speaking on the confirmation, Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, said:

“Let me on behalf of my distinguished colleagues congratulate Modibbo Tukur on his appointment as the first Director of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit; the first of its kind in this country.

“In the Senate, we moved for the independence of the NFIU which will help in the fight against corruption. I thank everyone that participated in the creation of this unit.

“As has been said by some of our colleagues like the DSP, This is a very important unit. We must ensure the neutrality, professionalism & independence of this unit because whatever it does reflects on the country in the fight against corruption.
