Northern Youths Council of Nigeria have noted with rude shock the revelation by Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) during an Interview with Channels Television in their flagship program “Sunrise Daily”
Mr Bawa was quoted as saying: “We investigated a matter in which a bank MD marketed a property to a minister and agreed to purchase it at $37.5m. The bank then sent a vehicle to her house to evacuate $20m from her house in the first instance”
It is safe for right thinking Nigerians to conclude that EFCC is through with its investigation of the matter, sadly, the said Minister and the bank MD are yet to be Ducked in any Court of Competent jurisdiction.
The NYCN have noted this as a deliberate attempt by the EFCC to conceal the identity of the thieves of our common wealth. If the EFCC can speedily parade suspected Yahoo boys and girls, why is the case of these characters different?
The inability of the EFCC to disclose their identity shows that either some people are powerful than the EFCC or there are some powerful individuals that planted the EFCC boss are teleguiding him on who to parade or not. Either ways, this amount to betrayal of trust of Nigerians and Mr President that appointed him to handle one of the focal point that led to election of the APC in 2015 and its reelection in 2019.
The Northern Youths Council also noted the concerned raised by EFCC wherein he stated that some people are after his life. We want to assure him that Northern Youths will stand with him and do everything to protect him, even if it means providing human shield for him in all his outings provided that he put the interest of over 200m Nigerians above the microscopic few that have access to our common patrimony.

In the event that the EFCC feels he can’t name and shame the bank MD and the Minister involved, we call on him to humbly resign and leave the stage more serious and fearless person to takeover the wheel. Corruption must be killed, if our nation must survive.
Until the identity of the minister is made public, Nigerians will continue to see every female minister serving in the present regime as operator of “House Vault” that are out for self aggrandizement. To salvage the reputation of other Ministers that are selflessly working for the betterment of Nigeria, the EFCC should quickly let the cat out of the bag.
