Bawa is hale and hearty – EFCC

Abdulrasheed Bawa

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday said its chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa, who slumped during an event at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, is “hale and hearty”.

“The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission, (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa is hale and hearty,” EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement.

“This clarification became necessary following an incident today September 16, 2021 at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he was giving a goodwill message to the National Identity Day celebration, felt unwell and had to return to his seat.

“He has since received medical attention and is due back at his desk.”

Bawa was addressing dignitaries at the event organised by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) meant for the celebration of national identity day before the incident.
