Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has disclosed that the commission is monitoring 3 serving governors.
Daily Trust reported that the EFCC boss said the governors plan to stash billions of naira through table payment of workers’ salaries.
The commission also disclosed that the recent raid on Bureau De Change operators would not stop while calling on Nigerians to support the move so the country can move forward. Bawa said some governors had decided to find a means of laundering the money they stashed in houses, stating that the commission is closely monitoring their activities.
While refusing to disclose the identity of the governors, Bawa disclosed that 2 of the governors are from the northern part of the country, while the third governor is a southerner.
He maintained that the intelligence the commission had obtained showed that the three governors had concluded plans to pour the money into the system by paying their state workers’ salaries in cash.
His statement reads in part: “Let me tell you something, the Intel that I have yesterday and I would want you to take this thing very seriously. Already, some state governors that have some of this cash stashed in various houses and the rest are now trying to pay salaries in cash in their state.”
