EFCC: ‘Abdulrasheed Bawa should deal with old, young thieves in govt offices’ - HURIWA (Updated: Tuesday, 16th February 2021, 10:46 PM)


The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has charged Abdulrasheed Bawa, to deal with old and young thieves in government offices, when confirmed as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

HURIWA, a frontline activist group made the remark while urging Bawa to carry out his duties in line with Nigeria’s constitutional provisions.

National Coordinator of HURIWA, Emmanuel Onwubiko said Bawa should ensure EFCC respect human rights in the discharge of its duties.

According to Onwubiko: “The new Chairman of EFCC is expected to be law abiding, firm but decisive just as he is expected to bring fresh air into the Modus Operandi he will inherit from his predecessor.

“The decision of President Buhari to appoint a youngster to head EFCC should be looked at from a positive dimension.

“Again, the new EFCC Chairman must know that over eighty percent of corruption happens in government offices and these suspected thieves in government garbs are those that young persons like him usually hail as “Ran Ka dede” (long may you live) in Hausa parlance. Whilst we expect him to be lawful, we do also expect him to deal with old thieves inside government offices.

“I want to tell the new man in EFCC that the moment he breaches human rights in the execution of his duties, he has automatically transgressed against the law and has created a bad international image for our nation. Remain firm, decisive but be guided by the laws.”

Buhari had nominated Bawa as the substantive Chairman of EFCC.

The president had written to the Senate requesting the confirmation of Bawa as the anti-graft agency.
