EFCC 1024x668 1

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dismissed the claim that it is currently recruiting new members into the Commission.

The anti-graft agency dissociated itself from a purported ongoing recruitment exercise in the name of the commission.

This was revealed in a statement released by the spokesperson of the Commission, Wilson Uwujaren.

He said the recruitment site is misleading and not original.

“The EFCC is not recruiting at the moment.

“Members of the public are enjoined to ignore the fake site and its content,” Uwujaren added.

We’re going to arrest many corrupt politicians after May 29 — EFCC Chairman, Bawa

The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa has said that the anti-graft agency under his watch will start arresting some corrupt governors when they leave office on May 29.

The Chairman made this revelation in an interview in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The Chairman did not reveal the identities of the corrupt governors on the commission’s list — who stand the chance of being arrested after May 29.

“And God willing, come May and June, we are going to make some huge arrests and commence huge prosecutions of people.

“And for those people that are not leaving in May, whenever they are leaving, we will be waiting for them to ensure that justice is done,” he said.

While speaking on his removal, the chairman said the anti-graft agency would not allow itself to be intimidated.

He said he’s first EFCC boss to be taken to court and testify.

“And there is a stay of execution, what do you expect? We move on!

“How many of our cases were lost? We lost 41 and we got 3,785. What is there? What are we talking about? Who is losing? Who is not losing? Nobody is losing and nobody is winning. But it is like that!

“It happened in 2007, it happened in 2011, it happened in 2015, it happened in 2019 and it is happening in 2023. We’re students of history.

“People are just trying to tell the incoming government that they need to change the chairman, maybe because the chairman is doing the right things. It is just a question of corruption fighting back. Nothing more!

“But what they do not know is the fact that in the last couple of months, we have more than ever before tried to institutionalise the operational activities of the EFCC.

“Whether it is Bawa or not, the EFCC will continue to do those good works that they don’t want and those prosecutions we’re planning to do.”
