The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has cautioned the Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, against bowing to partisan pressures to use the commission to harass dissenting voices.
It also urged the new EFCC helmsman to avoid the pitfalls of his immediate predecessor and work assiduously towards restoring the commission to its proper role of leading Nigeria’s war against financial crimes.
This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Restore Professionalism in EFCC, PDP Charges Bawa,’ by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Sunday.
The statement read in part, “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges the new Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, to re-engineer and restore professionalism in the anti-graft agency.
“The party urges Bawa to avoid the pitfalls of his immediate predecessor in office, by resisting all partisan pressures to use the agency as a tool for political persecution, harassment of dissenting voices, settling of personal scores as well as for personal enrichment, as witnessed under the last chairman.
“Such tendencies eroded professionalism in the EFCC, compromised its activities and diminished the public confidence with regard to fairness, impartiality and even-handedness in the handling of cases.”
