Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, has donated N10 million to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes, ICPC, among others, despite unresolved bribery allegations leveled against him.
Announcing the donation in Abuja, on Monday, Governor Ganduje promised that the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti Corruption Commission, would collaborate with the EFCC and ICPC.
He stressed that his administration was not only engaged in sensitising the citizenry on the evils of corruption, but also reorganised and strengthened its anti-corruption Agency, to offer optimal professional services.
“Before now, people find it difficult to access the services of the Agency, but we established Offices across the 44 Local Government Areas, so that the services can be available to the common man.”
“We also facilitated the recruitment of additional personnel, and subjected them to training by professional Agencies like EFCC and ICPC, so that they can deliver. We also ensured cooperation with these Agencies, and that attracted international organisations to support us in reinforcing our anti-corruption system”, he said.
The Governor, stated further that as a result of the renewed professional and vigour of the State’s anti-corruption Agency, highly placed individuals, such as Permanent Secretaries in the State’s Civil Service, and a Commissioner, were removed and prosecuted for involvement in fraudulent practices.
