The Senate has confirmed the nomination of the forty-year-old (40) Abdulrasheed Bawa as the new chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
This is coming shortly after he appeared before the upper chamber for his screening.
Mr. Bawa was accompanied into the Senate Chambers by his family members and political associates.
The forty-year-old has worked with the anti-graft agency for 16 years and is a Certified fraud examiner and anti-money laundering expert.
During his screening, Mr. Bawa assured the federal lawmakers of his commitment to repositioning the commission by ensuring that the anti-graft agency is in a better place before his tenure expires.
He said he will work with strategic partners around the world to see that Nigeria benefits from the repatriation of assets stolen from her coffers.
According to Mr. Bawa, the EFCC will achieve its independent objective by sharing information with its partners.
He promised that at the end of his tenure, the EFCC will be a better place than he met it, noting that his training by the FBI and the National Crime Agency of the United States and the United Kingdom respectively will come in handy, Channels Television reports.
