The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has debunked claims that its newly-elected Executive Chairman, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa advised the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC not to sell nomination forms to aspirant with corruption file in the 2023 general election.

The Commission in a statement by its Head, Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren on Saturday stated that the report was false and urged Nigerians to disregard it.

Uwujaren maintained that Bawa has neither met with INEC officials nor made any pronouncement relating to elections since he was appointed.

The agency pointed out that in Bawa’s two public outings, he spoke about issues concerning his vision for the EFCC and the outlook for the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

It further stated that qualification for elective political offices in Nigeria are clearly stated in the 1999 Constitution and relevant sections of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).

”It is not the place of the EFCC chairman to determine who runs for an office or otherwise,” it added.
