Tinubu Takes Action Against Alleged Abuse of Office as He Suspends EFCC Chairman Bawa

President Bola Tinubu Suspends EFCC Chairman AbdulRasheed Bawa Indefinitely

President Bola Tinubu has approved the indefinite suspension from office of the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), AbdulRasheed Bawa. The suspension was carried out to allow for proper investigation into his conduct while in office. According to the Director of Information at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, “weighty” allegations of abuse of office had been levelled against Bawa.

Handover Affairs
“Mr Bawa has been directed to immediately handover the affairs of his office to the Director, Operations in the Commission, who will oversee the affairs of the Office of the Chairman of the Commission pending the conclusion of the investigation,” the statement said.

State House Meeting
Earlier in the day, the EFCC Chairman was at the State House for a meeting with the President. It is unclear if the meeting was related to Bawa’s suspension.

Suspension of CBN Governor
The suspension of the EFCC Chairman follows last Friday’s suspension of Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and his subsequent arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS).
