PRESS RELEASE

Some social media houses have provided platform for the five aggrieved Federal
Character Commissioners who h have vowed to frustrate the Chief Executive of the Commission,
Dr. Muheeba Dankaka OON, NPOM by all means and at all cost through which they launched
unwarranted attacks on the personality and integrity of the Chief Executive Officer of the
Federal Character Commission.

  1. The latest impression given to the general public through some social media platform
    was that the Executive Chairman of the Federal Character Commission has been arrested,
    drilled and detained for hours by the Nigeria Police and Economic and Financial Crime
    Commission respectively following allegation of Certificate fraud made against her which is one
    of the blackmail strateqy adopted by the five aggrieved Commissioners.
  2. Granted that the allegation of certificate fraud was made against the Executive
    Chairman through one Civil Society Organization by the five aggrieved Commissioners, the
    allegation has been responded to. The Executive Chairman, times without number has made it
    clear that her academic record is open to anybody who cares to know, having undergone her
    academic career in Nigeria; Bayero University, Kano and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria for her
    Graduate and Post Graduate Studies.
    4 When a petition is written against a Public Servant either to EFCC or any government
    agency entrusted with the power of investigation, it is the duty of such Agency to invite the
    accused for interrogation and clarification. This is exactly the case with the Executive Chairman
    of the Federal Character Commission. She was invited to clear herself of the allegations made
    against her and was neither arrested not detained as wished by her detractors.
    5
    Since the wish of the detractors cannot be forced on the constituted authority
    responsible for investigations, the most appropriate thing to do is to allow the investigating
    authority to do their job and come out with their findings and recommendations. It is therefore
    appropriate to await the findings.
