The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says its chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, is hale and hearty after slumping at an event organised by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) at the presidential villa in Abuja on Thursday.
But in a statement on Thursday, spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said Bawa has received medical attention and is “due back at his desk”.
“The chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa is hale and hearty.
“This clarification became necessary following an incident today September 16, 2021 at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he was giving a goodwill message to the National Identity Day celebration, felt unwell and had to return to his seat.
