Hafsat Bakari and Nigeria’s Intelligence Financial Unit

News reaching me this morning is that Tinubu has appointed Hafsat Abubakar Bakari as NIFU director and CEO. While I was wondering who in god’s name Lady Hafsat was, I realised I hadn’t ever come across the term NIFU before, and low and behold, that means Nigerian Intelligence Financial Unit. Trust me, I am as surprised as you are. 

The Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) is the central national agency responsible for the receipt of disclosures from reporting organisations, the analysis of these disclosures and the production of intelligence for dissemination to competent authorities. The NFIU is an autonomous unit, domiciled within the Central Bank of Nigeria and the central coordinating body for the country’s Anti-Money Laundering, Counter-Terrorist Financing and Counter-Proliferation Financing (AML/CFT/CPF) framework.

Well, we welcome our new Director,

Before assuming the critical role of Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), Bakari served as Deputy Director at the NFIU, playing a pivotal role in advancing the unit’s mission of combating illicit financial flows and other sharp practices.

Before her tenure at the NFIU, Bakari held various leadership positions at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Her roles included Head of the General Services Unit, Head of the Strategy and Reorientation Unit, and Head of the Board Secretariat. Throughout her time at the EFCC, Bakari exemplified a steadfast commitment to integrity and transparency, earning the respect and admiration of colleagues and stakeholders alike.

Let us see how she tackles money laundering in Nigeria, Who knows, maybe she is the solution to the rising dollar.
