Here is Why the NEW EFCC CHAIRMAN is Trending on Twitter Just 3weeks After Assuming Office

The new and youngest Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) chairman, Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa is trending on Twitter this afternoon for a decision he made about bankers

According to reports, the EFCC chairman has instructed bankers throughout the nation to declare their assets before June 1.

Mr Bawa came under fire by those criticizing him because according to reports, He HIMSELF as the new EFFC CHAIRMAN is yet to complete his own assets declaration process at the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Many people are of the opinion that Mr Bawa should lead by example by first declaring bis assets publicly if he's serious about fighting corruption before compelling others to do so.

Also, it said that Abdulrasheed Bawa as the EFCC chairman does not have the constitutional rights to ask bankers to declare their assets.

Mr Bawa has been said to have given this instruction as a means of curbing money laundering and stopping corrupt bankers from helping corrupt citizens and politicians in making their illicit financial transactions for a fee.

What do you think about the directive by the EFFC Boss? Was it right for him to demand from others what he hasn't done himself yet?

Will bankers declaring their assets help stop corruption? Don't forget to drop your comments and share!!
