Momodu faults asset declaration directive for bankers from EFCC boss

THE CEO of Ovation Media Group, Dele Momodu, has faulted the proposed move by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to make bank employees to declare their assets in accordance with the bank employees declaration of assets Act. 

The new EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, said this while speaking with journalists after a meeting with President  Buhari yesterday.

He said the directive would start taking effect from June 1, 2021.Bawa had said there would be a paradigm shift in the commission’s operations under his watch.

He said this while taking the reins of leadership of the commission from his predecessor in office last month.

But reacting to the move, Momodu wondered why such a directive would be foisted on Nigerians in a democracy.

He also pointed out that banks belong largely to the private sector and declaration of assets should start with government agencies and politicians. 

He tweeted; “Are we in a military regime? Why not start with government agencies and politicians? Banks belong largely to the private sector… “EFCC orders bank workers to declare assets, sets June 1 deadline…”
