CACOL Kicks As EFCC Promotes New Chairman Ahead Of Senate Screening by Norphiee(f): 11:31am On Feb 21
The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership has faulted the hurried promotion of the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is set to face Senate screening soon.

The Executive Director of CACOL, Debo Adeniran, expressed his view during an interview with Sunday PUNCH on Saturday.

Bawa, who was appointed by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on February 16, 2021, was on Grade Level 13 and a Deputy Chief Detective Superintendent.

However, a lawyer, Osuagwu Ugochukwu, subsequently filed a suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja seeking to stop the Senate confirmation of Bawa.

The lawyer argued that Bawa was not qualified based on Section 2 of the EFCC Act which states that a person who will be appointed as chairman of the commission must have at least 15 years experience and must be the rank of an Assistant Commissioner of Police or its equivalent.

On Friday, however, Bawa, was promoted to the rank of Chief Detective Superintendent ahead of his Senate screening. Hours later, announcements were made that other officers had been promoted while their letters would be handed to them later.

Speaking with our correspondent, the CACOL director described Bawa’s sudden promotion as an afterthought.

Adeniran said the promotion was not enough, adding that the acting EFCC chairman must address allegations that he diverted recovered assets.

He said, “We see this hurried promotion as an afterthought and a case of putting the cart before the horse. Why was the promotion given barely days after the appointment? Why did it have to be the kinsman of the attorney-general? Is Bawa the most senior core EFCC official?


“In any case, Bawa still has corruption allegations hanging on his neck which must be addressed if we are serious about fighting corruption.”

A source in the EFCC, who wished to remain anonymous, said Bawa and his mates who are part of the pioneer Course 1 of the EFCC Cadet Officers were supposed to have been promoted over a year ago but their promotions were being delayed by the police-led leadership of the commission.

Nigerians just gave this buhari free hand to ruin this country,he is allowed to get away with so many things, the issue of the illegal retention of the IG has been forgotten,this blatant illegal appointment will soon be forgotten and the guy will be in office, the same way he forced the incompetent and corrupt magu on Nigerians, the result is there for all to see, the same way he forced the former service chiefs on Nigerians for six years without any visible achievements
Is buhari greater than Nigeria,he is not adding any value has never add any value,will never add any value because he does not have what it takes, the worst part is he doesn't even care,i wonder why we still tolerate him,he is a complete disaster.

Is there anything like due process in Buhari administration? Meanwhile, if EFCC should Chanel the energy used to chase street men to chasing our politicians, Nigeria will be better in no distance time.

If we can learn from the mistakes of the past, we would be doing better today but no,,, those who gain seats with political power do more harm than their predecessors.

I hope he wouldn't leave the office the same way Magu did.

It's just too funny and at the same very appalling how this government has decided to run a country as big as Nigeria based on ethnicism, nepotism and based on sentiments...

Bawa is no way eligible for the post then how come his name got to the president's desk for appointment...."Atttorney general's kinsman"

He even has criminal / corruption allegations against him.... Till he clears his name of those charges he should never assume the office rather be suspended till investigations are concluded....
