By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the new Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, corruption will be eradicated from Nigeria under his watch.
Bawa said that the rule of law and fear of God would be his guiding principles, adding that corruption was responsible for the country’s stunted growth, urging all stakeholders to work in synergy towards excoriating graft.
The EFCC Tsar stated this on Friday, March 26, 2021, while featuring on the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) special interview programme – ‘One-on-One’.
“We need to change our attitudes in Nigeria. We are in the habit of worshipping people that have money in society, but never bother to ask questions about their source of income. In winning the fight against corruption, we are engaging all stakeholders including religious leaders, community leaders, and others. We are going to embark on massive public enlightenment to sensitise people on the need to shun corruption in all its forms,” Bawa said.
