Gov. Ganduje Talks about anti-corruption agency in Kano
Abdullahi Umar Ganduje,The Governor of Kano State, spoke on the activities of the leadership of the State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.
He said for the first time, the State now has a versatile and vibrant leadership at the helm of the affairs of the organization.
Ganduje commended the competence of the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, including that the leadership of the anti-graft body came at a time when it was more of a necessity.
The Governor spoke during the launching of Domestication of the Kano State Societal Reorientation Program of ‘Change Begins With Me’ held at Coronation Hall, Government House, Kano.
He noted that the anti-corruption agency had been in existence for quite sometimes now, but only lucky to have the most qualified chief executive during his tenure as a governor.
He said, “When the former leaders of the agency were there, they were largely handicapped to operate. Because of one reason or the other in heading the place. You can go and check the style of their operations then.
“Muhuyi could perform above the old practice when those appointed could not come nearer to him in terms of performance.
“There are reasons for all our statements on what we are able to achieve within the period Muhuyi Magaji is heading this important body. He was, even before his appointment, a straightforward person who loves fair play and just society for all to live peacefully and transparently.
“We also started establishing offices across the 44 local governments of the state. That will ease access to our anti-graft agency by members of the rural communities.
He added, “We have a case of a Permanent Secretary who also lost his position courtesy Muhuyi Magaji’s efforts. There are many Directors who faced the music also. These are all indices showcasing the seriousness and capacity of the leadership of the Commission.”
