As 2023 Presidency draws nearer, EFCC deepens Tinubu probe

As 2023 presidency draws nearer, the fate of Bola Tinubu hangs in the balance, as The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has deepened its probe into All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu.

To this end, the EFCC has written a letter to the Code of Conduct Bureau, requesting copies of Tinubu’s asset declaration form.

A copy of the letter which was published by online news medium, The Peoples Gazette, revealed that the investigation into Tinubu began last year after the removal of erstwhile Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

The letter marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322, dated November 6, 2020 was signed by the then Lagos zonal head, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is now the Chairman of the EFCC.

The EFCC late 2020 wrote the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, asking the body to furnish it with more information on Tinubu’s asset declaration.

Tinubu was governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007.

New EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who was then Zonal Head of the commission in Lagos then, signed the letter to the CCB for the then Acting Chairman.

It is believed that the appointment of Bawa as EFCC chairman will give him more power to probe Tinubu ahead of 2023.
