Why Tinubu government should dismantle EFCC – Agbakoba
Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Olisa Agbakoba, has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government to dismantle the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to succeed in the corruption war.
Agbakoba said in an interview on The Morning Show of Arise Television on Wednesday.
He urged the President to relieve the EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
“We need to talk about anti-corruption, the anti-corruption process is not working,” he said.
“I have challenged the constitutionality of EFCC, the EFCC needs to be dismantled, Mr Bawa needs to go. What he’s doing is not attracting peoples confidence he’s always in battle with everybody, now he’s battling Matawalle (Zamfara governor) that’s no way to fight corruption.
“So we need to see Mr Bawa step aside honourably so that the anti-corruption process can be seen to be genuinely fought by the president and not any equivocation.”
The EFCC chairman and Matawalle had traded words over corruption allegations.
Bawa, in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service, challenged Matawalle to expose him if he has any fraud record against him.
