A statement by its Convener, Comrade Idris Kado, said the allegations against Gwarzo were too grave, adding that he should not be reinstated.

The statement reads:” We acknowledge the judgment of the National Industrial Court which ruled that the former finance Minister lacked the power to sack Gwarzo but we are insisting that the allegations of corruption were still disgraceful to the Buhari administration which swore to fight corruption.

“It is a slap on the integrity of the President’s anti-corruption war that Munir Gwarzo, who was said to have violated the civil service rules, is reinstated into office. President Buhari must intervene and uphold the sack of Munir Gwarzo.

“We call on President Buhari to stop the reinstatement. “As lovers of good governance, it is our expectation that President Buhari who has the power to sack Gwarzo fires him pending the outcome of the investigation.”
