The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to extend its invitations to state governors for investigations into alleged corruption and abuse of office, to officers of the presidency and members of the Federal Executive Council.
He made this known on Wednesday in a statement obtained by Punch .The governor noted that his attention was drawn to a statement credited to the Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, wherein he claimed he has sent invitations to all outgoing governors and commissioners in a bid to commence an investigation into alleged corruption and abuse of office perpetrated by them while in office.
He added that, while this is appropriate and commendable because it’s important for political office holders to account for their actions in office and EFCC is imbued with the power of investigation, however, this power must be exercised judiciously.
