Gwarzo made this call when he received members of the governing board of Performance, Earnings and Returns Leadership (PEARL) Awards Nigeria in his office in Abuja, Wednesday. The delegation was led by chairman of the Board, Alh. U.F. Abdullahi, former Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and members like the President/CEO of PEARL Awards Nigeria, Mr. Tayo Orekoya; Prof. Herbert Orji, Chairman of National Broadcasting Commission; Mr. Wole Adetunji a former DG of SEC as well as Dr. Faruk Umar, President of the Association for Advancement of Rights of Nigerian Shareholders.According to him, “One issue that is very critical in the capital market is corporate governance. I appeal that in your selection process for awards, emphasis should be given to the quality of compliance to best corporate governance practices by companies. This should be an important consideration in addition to the financial performance of companies. I think similar attention should also be paid to the kind of CSR projects companies embark on and how those projects are impacting the society.”
