Senate Confirms Abdulrasheed Bawa As EFCC Chairman

The Senate has confirmed the appointment of Abdulrasheed Bawa as the substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).

Forty year old Bawa was confirmed on Wednesday after an open screening on the floor of the Senate by lawmakers. 

In his opening remark, Bawa said his primary aim among others is to repatriate all stolen assets back to the country.

Responding to Senator Adamu Aliero's question on the controversial sale of seized assets to proxies during his time as Zonal Head of the agency in Port Harcourt, Bawa said the allegations were untrue.

According to him, such powers only rest with the Secretary of the EFCC, Mohammed Abba.

He explained that the current Acting Chair who was Secretary at the time of the sales, supervised the process along other officials of the Commission from Abuja.
