The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, stated that the commission is investigating the source of the funds used by candidates to purchase party nomination forms in advance of the 2023 elections.

Bawa revealed this on Politics Today, a current events programme on Channels Television, on Friday.

“When it comes to the issue of monitoring election funds and candidate funds, that is the responsibility of INEC,” he said. “However, we are working hand in hand with INEC and other related agencies in that field to ensure that we follow the money, we know its source, and whether it is legitimate or illegitimate, because that is what concerns us.”
