I watched the Senate Committee on Drugs, Narcotics, Financial Crimes and Anti-Corruption go through the motions yesterday as it confirmed the appointment of Mrs. Farida Waziri, a retired Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Police, as the new Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Born in 1946, Mrs. Waziri reminds me of my grandma, and in a good way. She looks and speaks like one of those kindly old ladies in children's fairy tales. Her CV is impressive, and one can only hope that under her benign exterioir lies a wolf hungry to devour crime.
Let's also hope that unlike Little Red Riding Hood's wolf, she manages to evade the hunter's axe.
