EFCC have made the warning via their twitter handle this evening, were they termed the seemingly un-ending congratulatory messages a distraction to Bawa in carrying out his assignment.

This is coming up few days after Bawa’s appointment and confirmation by the Nigerian senate to head the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has observed the increasing number of messages published in the print media by groups and individuals, congratulating Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa on his well-deserved appointment as the Executive Chairman of the Commission.”

“While the open exhibition of affection and solidarity may be salutary in our cultural milieu, and indeed appreciated, it is however inauspicious at this point in time and gradually turning into a distraction.”

“Mr. Bawa is assuming the leadership of the EFCC at a time of great challenge and he desires to hit the ground running.”

“What he needs from well-wishers and indeed all Nigerians, is support and prayers, and more importantly, credible information that will further the work of the Commission.”

Mr. Bawa urges his well wishers who resorted to paying for newspaper advertisements just to congratulate him for his appointment, to channel their money into something more useful like donating it to IDPs and Orphanage houses.

“He therefore appeals to all his admirers and well-wishers who might have the intention of demonstrating their love and support for him through paid newspaper advertisement to desist, and instead channel such resources to more worthy causes, such as making donations to Orphanages and Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps.”
