Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has that he is ‘hale and hearty’ after slumping while delivering a goodwill message at the National Identity Day at Banquet Hall, State House Abuja.
Bawa made this disclosure during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today monitored by Okay.ng on Thursday evening.
According to the EFCC boss, he received medical attention at the hospital and has been discharged.
He noted that the doctor said he was a ‘bit dehydrated’ when the incident occurred.
Bawa said: “Well of course I’m okay, as you can see I’m very much okay… What happened today (Thursday), you’re aware today is 16th of September, and it is National Identity Day celebration. I was invited by the NIMC, specifically the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy and while giving my goodwill message, I had to excuse myself because there was a bit of dizziness on me
“Then of course I went straight to the hospital, where the doctors confirmed that everything about me is okay but for the fact that I was a bit dehydrated and I need to take a lot of water. So straight away from the hospital, I went to the office tidied up one or two things; I’m now back at home.”
In addition, he thanked Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes.
