Numerous groups are demanding the immediate resignation and investigation of EFCC Boss, Abdulrasheed Bawa, due to various allegations against him.
Bawa is currently under immense pressure as reports suggest that he spent over $300,000 on accommodations and other purchases during a recent trip to Saudi Arabia with his family. In addition, Zamfara State governor Bello Matawalle has accused Bawa of requesting a $2 million bribe from him.
This allegation has added to the growing conflict between Matawalle and Bawa. The Northern Coalition of Civil Society Organisations has also urged Bawa to resign or be fired due to the corruption allegations. Nigerians are expressing concern about Bawa’s ability to lead an anti-graft agency, given the serious allegations against him.
The hashtag #BawaMustStepAside is currently trending on Twitter Nigeria, with many young Nigerians calling for Bawa’s immediate removal and investigation. The government is under significant pressure to address this issue.
