After EFCC Asked Bankers To Declare Their Assets Before June 1, See The Question Dele Momodu Asked

Ever since assuming the role of Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa who is a young detective and law enforcement agent has obviously been working hard to fight financial and economic related crimes in Nigeria.

While reacting to one of the latest moves taken by the anti-corruption agency, where EFCC ordered employees of banks in Nigeria to declare their assets, the CEO and publisher of Ovation International, Dele became critical of the idea, asking if we are now under a military government.

Chief Dele Momodu asked why the commission did not first start with government agencies and politicians, going further to say that the banking industry largely belongs to private individuals.

EFCC clearly states that this move is in accordance with the bank employees declaration of assets act, which requires every bank employee to make a full disclosure of every assets within 14 days of assuming duty with a bank.

In my won opinion, there is nothing wrong with the EFCC order on banks that obviously play a vital role in the Nigerian economy, as they are only doing their job to protect the financial system from fraudsters and all related acts that can discourage investors from doing business in Nigeria.

Do you agree with the EFCC order on bank employees to declare their assets or do you think that politicians and government agencies should have been their priority?
