The Senate has confirmed the nomination for the appointment of Abdulrasheed Bawa as the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFFC. The 40-year-old Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist was screened by the lawmakers at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly today February 24. Last week, President Buhari nominated Bawa and asked the Senate to confirm him as the substantive Chairman of the Commission. He assumes office as the first core EFCC official and non-police officer to head the agency. Bawa also became the youngest person ever to serve as chairman of the anti-corruption agency.
