From Segun Amure, (The New Diplomat’s Abuja Bureau)

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday warned against the increasing number of messages published in the print media by groups and individuals, congratulating Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa on his appointment as the Executive Chairman of the Commission.

The Commission noted that the paid advertisements in newspapers have become a source of distraction for its new boss, Bawa.

This was contained in a statement released by the EFCC through its Head, media and publicity, Wilson Uwujaren.

The commission urged those congratulating Bawa to desist from such and channel resources into more worthy courses such as making donations into orphanages and Internally Displaced Persons.

EFCC therefore seeks the support of Nigerians by praying for its Chairman and providing him with adequate information which will help in the furtherance of antigraft fight in the country.

The statement reads, “while the open exhibition of affection and solidarity may be salutary in our cultural milieu, and indeed appreciated, it is however inauspicious at this point in time and gradually turning into a distraction.

“Mr. Bawa is assuming the leadership of the EFCC at a time of great challenge and he desires to hit the ground running.

“What he needs from well-wishers and indeed all Nigerians, is support and prayers, and more importantly, credible information that will further the work of the Commission.

“He therefore appeals to all his admirers and well-wishers who might have the intention of demonstrating their love and support for him through paid newspaper advertisement to desist.

“And instead channel such resources to more worthy causes, such as making donations to Orphanages and Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps.” The statement stated.
