As Nigeria looks ahead to the post-pandemic era, the country’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission aims to ensure that the national economy is resilient against corruption and financial crime.
RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies is delighted to welcome Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa, the new Executive Chairman of the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for a discussion on the current state of efforts in Nigeria to combat corruption and financial crime, and in particular building a resilient post-pandemic economy in the country. The discussion will take place on Wednesday 8 September, from 1030–1130 UK time. This event will be held in a hybrid format, with limited space available for in-person attendees at RUSI’s offices at 123 Pall Mall. Please register your interest in participating with my colleague Sabrina at SabrinaD@rusi.org by 1700 BST on Monday 6 September, and mention whether you would like to attend in person. We will accommodate as many people in person as we can, within our office capacity restrictions. Please also feel free to pass this invitation on to a relevant colleague. We will inform you of the video conferencing details nearer the time.
