Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairmen of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said on Friday when he feature in a NTA interview programme ONE-on-ONE, threatened to resign from the position, if undue intervention into cases that involves high profile individuals are initiated.
His stance can also be found in a statement on EFCC’s official twitter handle.
“We need to change our attitudes in Nigeria,” Bawa was quoted to have said.
“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 sensitise people on the need to shun corruption in all its forms.”
The EFCC boss continued, “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.”
Recall, Bawa, replaced Ibrahim Mugu, after he was nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari and the senate went ahead to confirmed his appointment as the head of the anti-=graft agency.
