Corruption Fighting Back At Federal Character Commission



Dr. (Mrs) Muheeba Farida Dankaka

Since the appointment of Dr Mrs Farida Dankaka as the Chairman of the Federal Character Commission,FCC some entrenched interests in the Commission, repugnant to change appeared determined to perpetuate the regime of incompetence, inept leadership and corruption.

Within six months of her appointment, there has been grand designs to frustrate her and return the culture of corruption President Mohammadu Buhari is fighting, which influenced the appointment of such qualified and incorruptible lady to the commission.

Within this period, frivolous petitions was falsely reported to have been written to the ICPC and lately the National Assembly, accusing the respected entrepreneur and administrator of corruption, high handedness and job racketeering. This was accompanied by aggressive media campaigns calculated to smear the hard earned reputation of Dr Dankaka.

A cursory look at the petitions signed by two members out of thirty seven of the Commission suggest that the petitioners were shamelessly working on hearsay as the petition read inta alia that “..we gathered..”. Its shameless indeed that people of that status could orchestrate lies to mislead institutions just as to get an individual.

Its ridiculous to allege someone of manipulating employment in favour of eleven persons from her senatorial district when in actual fact she is at the forefront of the fight against job racketeering perpetuated by certain interest in the commission.

Since her appointment, the FCC Chairman has made giant stride in the commission including, strict adherence to the provision of the FCC act for effective delivery on the commission’s mandate, capacity building for management and staff of the commission, institutionalising the principle of probity, accountability and value for money among others.

President Mohammadu Buhari was clear in his vision to have appointed Dr Dankaka, a woman whose pedigree and integrity is obviously not in doubt or questionable.

Dr. (Mrs) Muheeba Farida Dankaka is not new to management or Leadership and her coming into public office is indeed a blessing.
