CSO's Resume EFCC Chairman ''Bawa Must Go'' Campaign

About 130 frontline anti-corruption Civil Society Organisations, have resumed their campaign for the sack of Abdulrasheed Bawa the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over alleged politicisation of the commission, disobedience of Court orders and infringement on human rights of Nigerians, among others.

Joined by 20 Constitutional lawyers led by Mogbojuri Kayode of the Citizens Rights Advocacy Group, CRAG, the CSOs claimed the desperation of the EFCC chairman to remain in office had taken a laughable turn, insisting that no amount of “purchased CSOs’ vote of confidence” would cover the truth about the abnormalities being condoned in EFCC under its current leadership.

At a joint press conference in Lagos yesterday, they alleged that the EFCC had become so desperate to launder what they called a rapidly diminishing image of Bawa, to the extent that the Commission recently issued a press release, informing Nigerians that a CSO had passed a vote of confidence in its chairman.

The Anti-corruption activists, however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for bailing the country out of what they described as a Judicial quagmire “by dissociating the Presidency from any act of disobedience to court orders and making the Central Bank of Nigeria comply with a Supreme Court order that extended the validity of old naira notes till December 31, 2023.”

Spokesperson for the Coalition, Olufemi Lawson in a speech delivered on behalf of the activists said
“As this is expected to ease the pain of the masses, we hereby call on the President to also wade into the seeming fixation of the EFCC on certain individuals and the desperation of the Chairman of the Commission to score cheap political goals through unwarranted media trials of non-convicted individuals in the country. He should direct Mr. Bawa to step aside until he purges himself of contempt as ruled by a High Court,”

When Jonathan was president just because of fuel scarcity people enter street. Now the suffer is too much no money to buy food, no money to even buy fuel, when you go to bank na 3k dem go give and people are quiet! Well I no dey Nigeria but I am so worried about elderly people and children!

  4. All this mallams that are head of Nigerian key sector will just be behaving anyhow like their Buhari.

  5. EFCC is a useless organization. They don't understand their mandates. Where to show power, they will be missing in action.

  6. Maybe the guy is doing something right. It is the way of charlatans to hire protesters most of the time when they can't get their way.
