The Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa, has explained the reason why he slumped while delivering a speech on Thursday at the presidential villa in Abuja.
The EFCC Boss was delivering a speech at an event organized by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) inside the Presidential Villa when he fainted on Thursday.
Bawa was immediately rushed to the hospital, where doctors told him he was dehydrated.
Speaking on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, Bawa explained that while he was delivering a goodwill message at the occasion , he started experiencing dizziness and he has to excuse himself from the stage.
“While giving my goodwill message during the programme organized by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), there was a sort of dizziness on me and I had to excuse myself from the stage.
“And of course I went straight to the hospital where the doctors confirmed to me that everything about me is okay except for the fact that I’m a bit dehydrated and need to take a lot of water. Straight away from the hospital, I went back to the office and now I’m back at home.” he said.
