Following the appointment of Detective Abdulrasheed Bawa as the Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the National Association of Nigerian Students has charged the EFCC Chairman on conscientious service.
Mr Damilola Simeon , the State Chairman of NANS stated this in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Sunday.
He described the appointment as an enviable win for the entire Youths and Students in this country.
“As such, we charge Abdulrasheed Bawa to perform his responsibilities with utmost sincerity, live up to expectations and make himself a worthy testimonial that Nigerian Youths and Students are ready to take up the mantle of leadership.
“This will open further portals of opportunities in high ranking offices of the federation for the Nigerian youths and Students.
“Moreover, all form of witch hunting charades, sectional investigations and victimisations must be jettisoned.
“EFCC under the new leadership must refrain from personality targeting and scapegoating activities that may insinuate that Abdulrasheed Bawa was planted to act out a script or victimise some individuals whom he could not nab during his stint as the head of Lagos zonal office.
“We encourage Abdulrasheed Bawa to avoid power plays but rather discharge his duties conscientiously.
“In addition, we implore the EFCC Chairman to neither get carried away with power nor participate in any untoward scripts against the general interest of the public or succumb to pressure from politicians.
“More than ever, the EFCC under your leadership must refuse to be a mere tool for the government but rather be guided by the Rule of law, Fairness, Equity and Justice.
“The generality of Nigerian youths are counting on you to prove a point that youths and Students are ready for sensitive positions.
“We wish to reiterate our utmost commitment towards ensuring a crime free society and express our willingness to cooperate with the EFCC and other relevant security agencies to curb crime and its perpetrators in the society over investigations that are impartial and upright
