According to Bwala, the new EFCC chairman has not investigated a single case because he does not have an investigative background.
Speaking about the requirements for the EFCC Chairman post, he stated that a person with experience in security or law enforcement must hold the role.
He stated, “This is the point; there is a baseline. The baseline is that the person must come from a security or law enforcement agency of the government, the reference is the government not the private sector.
“The security is one that is covered by the National Security Agency Act which comprises DIA, NIA and SSS. Law enforcement compromises both EFCC, the police, the NSCDC and the rest….He didn’t have power to hold guns, he never investigated a single case because he did not come as an operative.”
