A former Minister of Education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili has lent her voice to calls for those involved in the Panama Papers scandal to be probed.

Notable Nigerians like Femi Falana (SAN), and other civil society groups have also called on the Federal Government to probe those named in the document.

Ezekwesili said “I want to add my voice to the voices of the members of civil society groups who are demanding that action be immediately taken by our government in initiating a process for further investigation of the allegations coming out of the Panama Paper leaks.

“It is a global leak and many countries are already using their domestic instruments to find out a lot more. In fact, in some of the countries, ahead of the facts being established or confirmed, some of the public officials are already resigning from their position. I think it is important to realise that the matter of operating offshore accounts in tax havens have been an issue which Transparency International, which I co-founded, has been on for many years.

“The reason we have the EFCC is that when things like this happen globally, and other nations are taking measures to determine how it affects them, our own EFCC, our own government, our own Ministry of Justice must show responsiveness. That is what responsive governance is all about.”

The founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua has also denied any involvement with Mossack Fonseca.

Mossack Fonseca is a law firm in Panama that helps people register shell companies in tax havens. The law firm owns the documents that was leaked.
