Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has asked “dishonest” officials in the commission to resign.
Leakblast.com reports that Bawa made this known while addressing staff at the EFCC zonal office in Markurdi, Benue state capital, on Thursday.
While insisting that the values of professionalism and integrity of the commission must be upheld, Bawa said it was not possible for an official who is corrupt to fight corruption.
“Let me remind each and every one of us that we are doing a very special job, that the government, the people of Nigeria and international community are looking up to us to have a better Nigeria,” he said.
“We will never tolerate any form of corruption in this place. If you are a bad egg, you are free to leave. We will be happy to work with a few people, and we are ready to dismiss and dismiss. If you think you cannot do what the laws of the land expect us to do, kindly resign and leave us alone.”
He stated that the commission will not rest on its oars, as Nigerians and the international community are looking up to the agency to wipe out corruption.
“We are renovating, rehabilitating and remodeling the EFCC academy. This is for adequate staff training and retraining for improved efficiency and effectiveness in the discharge of our duties to achieve our goals and objectives,” Bawa said.
