The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL) on Monday defended its petition against the suspended Director-General of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mr. Mournir Haliru Gwarzo lodged at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The Executive Chairman of CACOL, Comrade Debo Adeniran, who defended the petition on Monday for about one hour before the Head of the Capital Market Unit of the EFCC, in Abuja said the presence of his team was to put face to the petition against Gwarzo.
“We responded to the invitation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC today to adopt (defend) our petition against Mr. Gwarzo. We are delighted that the EFCC responded promptly, and is enthusiastic to investigate the subject of our petition. We intend to follow through with this process and we will not be distracted by all the attempts by Gwarzo and his cronies to make us back down drawing on absurd and unconnected straws to whip up sentiment in the media. Those who know us know, we do not just take up a cause, when we do, we are tenacious in our pursuit and we approach our campaigns with independence of mind.”
