The Economic and Financial Commission says its Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has received medical attention after he broke down while presenting a brief address and was rushed out of the banquet hall at the presidential villa on Thursday September 16 2021.

EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, made this known in a statement titled, ‘Bawa Is Hale and Hearty – EFCC’.

He said, “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.

“He has since received medical attention and is due back at his desk.”

Newsmen had earlier reported that Bawa slumped while delivering a goodwill message at the event.

He had suddenly stopped speaking and asked to be excused.
