Keyamo, a former EFCC prosecutor, said he can attest to the “intellectual depth and conscientiousness” of the new EFCC chairman. 

He said he worked with the new EFCC boss on few cases before his appointment by President Buhari as a minister.

The minister who took to his verified Twitter handle to celebrate the appointment said, “I rarely do this, but having prosecuted for the EFCC for more than a decade before my appointment as Minister, I can attest to the intellectual depth and conscientiousness of this nominee, Abdulrasheed Bawa with whom I did a few matters. Congrats, ahead of the Senate screening.”
