The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has threatened to resign from the position, if anyone asked him to compromise.

In a statement posted on the EFCC’s official Twitter handle, the anti corruption boss said: “we need to change our attitudes in Nigeria.”
“We are in the habit of worshipping people that have money in the society, but never bother to ask questions about their source of income. In winning the fight against corruption, we are engaging all stakeholders including religious leaders, community leaders and others.
“We are going to embark on massive public enlightenment to sensitise people on the need to shun corruption in all its forms.”
Bawa vowed to continue to do what is right, saying: “the Commission under my watch will continue to abide by the rule of law.”
