Stop the Congratulatory Messages for Abdulrasheed Bawa, EFCC Warns
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has warned the members of the public to stop sending in congratulatory messages to the Commission’s newly appointed boss Abdulrasheed Bawa.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said in a statement issued on the 2nd of March 2021, which was also made available on the commission official Twitter handle, that the Crimes Commission has observed the increasing number of messages published in the print media by groups and individuals, congratulating Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa on his well-deserved appointment as the Executive Chairman of the Commission.
The Commission said the congratulatory messages are gradually becoming a distraction. The Commission stated that what the newly appointed boss needs now from well-wishers and indeed all Nigerians, is support and prayers, and more importantly, credible information that will further the work of the Commission. Because Mr. Bawa is assuming the leadership of the EFCC at a time of great challenge and he desires to hit the ground running.
