Gov. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has charged the state’s Public Complaint and Anti Corruption Commission, not to compromise in the fight against corruption no matter who is involved.
The Governor backed and ordered this while visiting the Kano state public complaints and Anti-corruption commission on Saturday, further stressing that this is part of the state effort to replicate the fight against corruption in the state under the chairmanship of Muhiyi Magaji Rimin Gado.
Ganduje added that the Federal Government cannot alone fight corruption hence the replication of the anti-graft agency at the state and local government levels.
He said: “Whosoever falls into the commission’s trap should face the consequence. I will have nothing to do with it. I will not interfere with any case whosoever might be involved.
“With the way, corruption is fighting back and the fight against corruption being an agenda of President Muhammad Buhari, the federal government cannot fight it alone.
“It needs domestication in the states and the local governments to succeed,” the governor said.
In his welcome address, the Chairman of the commission, Muhyi Magaji, commended Ganduje’s determination to fight corruption in the state.
“It is your will and support that has made this anti-graft agency among the best in the country.
“We have set benchmarks in the country and are being emulated by other states,” he said.
The commission recently recovered N310,000 meant for Imams that participated in a special prayer against COVID-19 and insecurity, from an aide to the governor. (NAN)
