The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission has vowed to support Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s fight against corruption and maladministration.
The anti-corruption agency said it had also renewed its commitment to tackling corruption and other social vices impeding the country’s development.
The Executive Chairman of the commission, Muhuyi Rimingado, gave the assurance when he received Mr Ganduje and members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) on a media tour to his office in Kano on Tuesday.
Mr Rimingado explained that the agency was committed to driving the governor’s anti-corruption agenda and other social vices affecting development.
“We will not relent in our efforts to fight corruption, corrupt practices, and maladministration,’’ he stated.
The chairman thanked members of the guild for the visit, saying, “we are committed and determined to this cause.”
However, he urged the media to sensitise the public on the dangers of corruption and continue supporting government efforts at tackling corruption in the country.
He noted that the state had also established an anti-corruption institute to train its staff for efficient service delivery.
In his remarks, former Ogun Governor Olusegun Osoba, who led the NGE delegation, commended Mr Ganduje and the commission for their zeal to fight corruption and urged them to sustain the tempo.
Mr Ganduje, together with the guild members, also visited multimillion-naira Kano Economic City, Dangote Skills Acquisition Centre, Kano Ceremonial Court, Isiaka Rabiu Paediatric Hospital, and Muhammadu Buhari Hospital.
The governor showcased the “first-class” facilities and infrastructures to the delegates, saying they are to improve the lives of Kano citizens.
About 300 editors are attending the NGE 2021 Biennial Convention. The event will end today (Wednesday).
