On Tuesday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ordered all bank officials to declare their assets. They also revealed that the exercise would commence on 1st June 2021. However, some social media users hailed EFCC for taking such a bold step, while others called it a misplaced priority.
Deji Adeyanju, not long ago, took to his Twitter account and reacted to the recent order by EFCC. The Nigerian activist also gave reasons why the order is a welcome development.
Sharing his tweet, he revealed that what EFCC recently said is a good development because most of the money laundering by politicians are facilitated by bank officials. He alleged that they buy estates and move money for them.
"The order by EFCC for banks and their officials to declare their assets is a good development. Most of the money laundering by politicians are done with bank officials. They buy estates & move money for them."
Social media users who read Deji's tweet reacted to it. A Twitter user identified as @adeyanjuDeji stated that EFCC recent move is commendable. He also hopes that Bawa sustains the energy and the spirit doesn't get taunted by orders from Abuja.
However, others revealed that bankers always declare their assets even before now as a matter of regulation. They said EFCC should obtain copies from CBN if they wish and stop grandstanding.
Some persons questioned how the chairman refers to a 1986 law before the advent of EFCC. They also asked how many EFCC officials have declared their assets.
