The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has directed the Chairman of the State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhyi Rimingado, not to compromise in the fight against corruption in the state, whoever it might involve.
The governor gave the directive on Saturday while on an inspection tour of the renovation taking place at the commission’s headquarters in the state capital.
The governor also stated that the Federal Government could not fight corruption alone without replication at the state and local government levels.
He said, “Whoever falls in the commission’s trap should be made to face the consequences. I will have nothing to do with it. I will not interfere in any case, whoever might be involved. With the way corruption is fighting back, and being an agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to fight against corruption, the Federal Government cannot fight corruption alone; it needs domestication in the states and the local governments to succeed.”
In his remarks, the chairman of the commission, Rimingado commended Ganduje’s political will in the fight against corruption in the state.
The agency had last week recovered N310,000 from the Special Adviser on Religious Affairs, Ali Fagge, who was alleged to have defrauded imams who participated in a special prayer session against COVID-19 and insecurity.
The embattled aide was said to have deducted N45,000 out of N50,000 approved by the governor for each of the 360 clerics who participated in the prayer session.
