By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Following the increasing number of congratulatory messages for the new Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa, in the print media by individuals and groups, the apex anti-corruption agency has called for a stop to such publications.
According to the agency, while the open felicitations maybe in consonance with our cultural values, and indeed appreciated, it is however expedient at this point in time and gradually turning into a distraction.
Mr. Bawa is assuming the leadership of the EFCC at a time of great challenge and he desires to hit the ground running. What he needs from well-wishers and indeed all Nigerians, is support and prayers, and more importantly, credible information that will further the work of the Commission.
He therefore appeals to all his admirers and well-wishers who might have the intention of demonstrating their love and support for him through paid newspaper advertisement to desist, and instead channel such resources to more worthy causes, such as making donations to Orphanages and Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps.
