The meeting happened at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday. It was a closed-door meeting. Only photos from the meeting were shared on the official Twitter handle on the Nigeria Government.

“President @MBuhari received in audience the newly appointed @officialEFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa at the State House, Abuja,” the photos were captioned.

Bawa was nominated by President Buhari for the office of the Chairman of EFCC. He got confirmed for office by the senate after a plenary on Wednesday.

During the plenary session, Bawa denied the allegation of corruption and fraud laid against them when he was servicing as the Zonal Head of the agency in Port Harcourt.

Bawa was accused of selling trucks seized by the agency to his proxies at a ridiculous price.

Responding to the allegation, he said, “I never sold a single truck at the Port Harcourt office; the head office handled that at the time.”

“When I took over the Port Harcourt office, they had 34 convictions, but when I got there, we recorded 216 convictions.

“Anybody that is familiar with the processes of the EFCC knows that the chairman doesn’t have the power to sell an asset but the secretary of the agency.”
