President Tinubu Faces Pressure in Choosing Next EFCC Chairman

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

President Bola Tinubu is reportedly facing intense pressure in choosing the next chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Two names are being rumored as potential candidates: the incumbent Acting Chairman Abdulkarim Chukkol and former secretary of the commission, Olanipekun Olukoyede.

Olukoyede previously served as secretary under former Acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu until both were suspended in 2020 for alleged corruption.

Chukkol is said to be closely associated with the immediate past Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is currently under investigation for corruption.

The pressure on Tinubu to appoint Olukoyede is said to be driven by the belief that he will protect Christian leaders who served in the previous administration from investigation and prosecution.

However, an Abuja-based civil society group, Alliance for Good Governance and Due Process, has criticized Olukoyede’s alleged nomination, stating that it would be a violation of the EFCC Act and would undermine the commission’s effectiveness.

The group argues that Olukoyede lacks the necessary qualifications and is still under investigation for corruption.

Critics argue that Olukoyede’s potential appointment highlights Tinubu’s lacklustre approach to anti-corruption efforts.
