Buhari is praised by EFCC chief Bawa at an OIC meeting in Saudi

President Muhammadu Buhari has received praise for the fight against corruption in Nigeria from the head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa.

Bawa delivered the nation’s statement at the inaugural ministerial gathering of the OIC’s anti-corruption and law enforcement authorities, which is now taking place (OIC).

The OIC is a 57-member intergovernmental organization that was founded in 1969, 48 of which have a majority Muslim population.

The Makkah Al-Mukarramah Convention, which requires members to give priority to intra-OIC collaboration, was endorsed in the 2022 summit in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Governments should work more closely together, according to Bawa, who claimed that corruption knows no boundaries and affects all nations.

According to the head of the EFCC, corruption threatens sustainable development, economic growth, peace, and the strength of government institutions and governance.

Bawa, who spoke on behalf of Abubakar Malami (SAN), the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, said that President Buhari was elected because of his pledge to fight corruption.

The discovery and restoration of stolen property, the incarceration of numerous officials suspected of corruption, and successful prosecutions all reflect the current government’s robust anti-corruption drive.

According to Bawa, Nigeria implemented several legislative measures, such as the whistleblower policy, which encouraged patriotic citizens to share important information.

He said, “The policy helped lead to the arrest, conviction, and recovery of stolen public funds.”

According to Bawa, the government is dedicated to giving the EFCC, ICPC, Police, Legislature, Judiciary, Media, and Civil Society the tools they need to join the fight.

The commission was willing to share its experiences with OIC member states, the anti-graft czar stated.
