Screening of EFCC Chairman will be transparent — Lawan



Following the nomination of Abdulrasheed Bawa as the substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday, the Senate President Ahmad Lawan says the screening of the nominee will be a transparent process.

Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed Bawa as the EFCC Chairman.

However, it was subjected to the confirmation of the National House of Assembly.

In the letter, the president based his request for confirmation on paragraph 2(3) of part1, CAP E1 of EFCC act 2004.

The nominee, who is 40 years old, is currently the Lagos zonal head of the anti-graft agency.
