Dismantle the EFCC, Sack Bawa, IG, and All Service Chiefs; Agbakoba Advises Tinubu


Human rights activist, maritime lawyer, and former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Olisa Agbakoba SAN, has advised Bola Tinubu to hit the ground running and purge his government of the major players in the previous administration.

In an interview that Parallel Facts watched on Arise Television on Wednesday, Agbakoba made this statement. He opined that there is a need to cleanse all anti-corruption agencies in Nigeria to position them effectively in the task of fighting corruption.
He said, “The anti-corruption process is not working; I have challenged the constitutionality of the EFCC.

The EFCC is a behemoth; it needs to be dismantled. Mr. Bawa needs to go; what he is doing is not attracting people’s confidence. He is always in battle with people, and that is not how to fight corruption.”

In the face of insecurity, he advised the service chiefs to honorably resign. He said, “Tinubu cannot carry on with these service chiefs; all of them should resign, including the Inspector General of Police, because they’ve not done well.” We need to create a new security infrastructure to tackle our security challenges”. Mr Agbakoba said.
