Biography :

Farida Waziri Mbamber born July 7 1946, is a the former Executive Chairperson of the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in May 2008. She succeeded Nuhu Ribadu in this post.

Farida Waziri was removed from her position by former President Goodluck Jonathan on 23 November 2011 and on 28 November 2011 was replaced by Ibrahim Lamorde as acting chairman.Her dismissal may have been related to accusations that the EFCC had been selective in its investigations, or to her falling out with the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke over the prosecution of cases that were brought before the court.It was also alleged that Waziri might have compromised the investigation into financial misappropriation against the former governor of Bayelsa state,Timipreye Sylva. In some cases, as with a case against former Edo State governor Lucky Igbinedion, the court imposed negligible penalties.
