The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL), has described the decision by the Federal Government to file appeals through Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other agencies against the recently lost cases on fraud as the way forward. 

The Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran said the recent court rulings in favour of suspected corrupt persons may seem to be negative and demoralizing but “the momentum of the anti-corruption fight must not be dampened by the temporary victories of pro-corruption elements.

“The fight against corruption must continue irrespective of the challenges being presently encountered.”

He said there were bound to be challenges on the path of success of the anti-corruption drive.

He urged the Federal Government to pay particular attention to enhancing competency in its prosecutions on one hand and improving the capacity of anti-graft agencies on the other to achieve convictions on corruption cases.
