The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has said that he would tender his resignation if he is asked to do anything that is against the law.
EFCC revealed this in a series of tweets detailing the Bawa’s appearance on One-on-One, a programme on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) on Friday, March 26.
Bawa said, “We need to change our attitudes in Nigeria. We are in the habit of worshipping people that have money in the 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 sensitize people on the need to shun corruption in all its forms.
The EFCC boss added, “I will continue to do what is right. The Commission under my watch will continue to abide by the rule of law. If anybody asks me to do anything contrary to my conscience or against the rule of law, I will resign my appointment. We have just created the Directorate of Intelligence. We need to re-engage ourselves with all our stakeholders in the fight against corruption because this is something we cannot do alone; all hands must be on deck.”
