Advocacy Group Calls for EFCC Investigation into Governor Lawal's Connections with Emefiele and Dieziani

NGO Urges EFCC to Investigate Governor Lawal, Emefiele, and Dieziani’s Connections

The Association of Civil Society and Public Interest Organisation in Nigeria (CCSPION) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to intensify its investigation into the relationship between Zamfara State Governor Dauda Lawal, former CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele, and former Minister of Petroleum Resources Dieziani Alison Madueke. The group emphasizes the need for a comprehensive approach to tackling corruption, targeting both perpetrators and those facilitating corrupt practices.

During a press briefing in Abuja, the National Coordinator of CCSPION, Abraham Ekokotu, urged the EFCC to expose and hold accountable individuals who aided and abetted any alleged corrupt practices of the former CBN governor. He stressed the importance of the anti-graft body taking action against anyone found guilty of looting or laundering public funds.

The group also called on the EFCC to thoroughly investigate corruption allegations against Governor Dauda Lawal, emphasizing that he should not go unpunished if found guilty. Additionally, Ekokotu urged Governor Lawal to provide clarifications on alleged discrepancies in his certificates to ensure proper identification.

In addressing the issue, Ekokotu stated, “Nigerians and the good people of Zamfara State cannot perpetually be deceived or remain in confusion. Lawal owes them a duty based on his Faith, Oath of Office, and Moral Rectitude to explain to the world why there are several discrepancies in his documents and how long he would undermine the rules of the game.”

The call for investigation comes at a time when there is increased scrutiny of public officials and a growing demand for accountability in Nigeria’s governance.
