President Muhammadu Buhari has finally met with the newly appointed Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa.
“President @MBuhari received in audience the newly appointed @officialEFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa at the State House, Abuja,” the photos were captioned.
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.”
