If someone asks me to do something against the law, I will resign - EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa

Abdulrasheed Bawa, chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), said that if he is asked to do anything against his conscience, he will resign.

The 40-year-old EFCC chairman said in an interview with NTA that he will use the law as a guide in all actions.

Bawa also urged Nigerians to stop glorifying corruption and corrupt elements in society. He said in the interview;

"We need to change our attitude in Nigeria. Our habit is to worship the rich in society, but never ask questions about their sources of income.

"In winning the fight against corruption, we are interacting with all stakeholders (including religious leaders, community leaders and others).

"We will embark on large-scale public enlightenment activities to make people aware of the need to avoid all forms of corruption.

"I will continue to do the right thing. The Commission under my supervision will continue to abide by the rule of law. If someone asks me to do something that violates my conscience or the rule of law, I will resign."
