E Get Reason! Forcing Bankers To Declare Their Assets Is Unnecessary & A Misplaced Priority

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has given Bankers Ultimatum on Asset Declaration.



The Commission’s Executive Chairman, Abdulrashed Bawa on March 16, while speaking with journalists at the State House, Abuja after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, said that all operators in the Nigerian financial system especially bankers must declare their assets latest June 1

According to him, it is part of measures to sanitize the nation’s financial system and block some loopholes.

MY THOUGHTS:
Inasmuch as section 1 of the Bank Employees, ETC. (Declaration of Assets) Act 1986 makes it mandatory for every employee of a Bank to make full disclosure of assets upon employment, and annually in subsequent years, I think this measure is unnecessary at the moment.

Why I said so? You can’t leave politicians (the main criminals) and be chasing shadows( bankers). All Nigeria political leaders, starting from the president, should be mandated to declare their assets. Let’s start from the bigger thieves.

The new EFCC chairman Bawa is young, but think and act like an old man. No difference between him and Anini Magu.
