Obidike Chukwuebuka, a member of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has cautioned against President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in the ongoing case between former Kogi state governor Yahaya Bello and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Chukwuebuka spoke exclusively with Legit.ng on the former Kogi governor’s alleged N80.2 billion fraud.

While acknowledging the president’s authority to intervene, Chukwuebuka emphasised the need to consider the potential implications of such action.

Chukwuebuka outlined arguments for and against intervention, highlighting the importance of maintaining the EFCC’s independence and upholding the rule of law.

Chukwuebuka recommended that President Tinubu avoid direct intervention and instead encourage a speedy and fair investigation, support the EFCC’s anti-corruption efforts, and respect the judicial process.

This approach, he believes, would demonstrate the President’s commitment to the rule of law and the fight against corruption while avoiding perceived political interference.

The EFCC vs Bello case has sparked debate about the balance between political resolution and the independence of anti-corruption agencies.

The EFCC is investigating Governor Bello over alleged financial misconduct, prompting a standoff between the two parties. The outcome may set a precedent for future cases involving high-ranking officials.

“To maintain the integrity of the legal process and the independence of the EFCC, it’s recommended that President Tinubu avoids direct intervention,” Chukwuebuka told Legit.ng.
