Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has vowed not to shield anybody culpable of corruption which his administration is committed to fight.
The Governor stated this on Saturday during a visit to the state’s Public Complaint and Anti Corruption Commission.
“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,” he said.
“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 commission’s chairman Muhyi Magaji, commended the governor for his “commitment to the anti-graft war”.
He said: “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.”
The commission had reportedly recovered N310,000 meant for imams that participated in a special prayer against COVID-19 and insecurity from an aide of the governor.
