The Aim Is To Expose Corrupt Nigerians On The Front Pages Of Our Newspapers – EFCC

The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa has come out to warn members of the press to verify things before publishing.

He recently revealed this during a workshop with journalists on the effective reporting of economic and financial crimes, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the media has to be very cautious in the coverage of economic crimes because it is too sensitive an information to not be verified before being put out to the public.

Bawa added that the aim remains to not celebrate the corrupt in our midst, but to expose them on the pages of our newspapers.

His words, “While wishing you a happy deliberation, let me use this opportunity to appeal to the media to be cautious in the coverage of economic crimes and ensure you verify your facts before publication. As a worthy, dependable, and reliable ally, I want to use this opportunity to further urge media practitioners to put the interest of our country at heart, particularly as it relates to a conscientious effort not to celebrate the corrupt in our midst, but to expose them on the pages of your newspapers, screens of television, or on our various online platforms.”

“The war against corruption is a worthy fight for the soul of Nigeria, and for the future generation. It should not be left to the EFCC alone. Nevertheless, there are issues in the media profiling of the Commission that are less than desirable.”

“The notion, for instance, that the Commission is draconian in its approach to fighting cybercrime is perhaps borne out of poor understanding of its modus operandi. But I am convinced that at the end of this workshop, we will all be better educated on the processes and procedures of the EFCC.”

“As watchdog of society, you must be mindful that your reportage is a mirror that shapes global perception of our institutions and nation. It logically follows that this sacred duty is one that must be discharged with a lot of responsibility and, of course, patriotism.”
