Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has bagged accolades from the African Centre for Transparency and Anti-Corruption Advocacy (Africa-TAAD) for establishing the Kano Anti-Corruption Institute.

According to a Tuesday statement by Abba Anwar, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, the accolades came in a letter signed by Executive Director of Africa-TAAD, Isma’ila Auwal.

Auwal was quoted as saying hat the people of Kano were forever in the Ganduje administration’s debt for establishing the institute, the “only state-owned agency that fights corruption”, and entrusting the agency in the hand of the most appropriate person to guide its affairs.

“This is a gesture that needs to be appropriately acknowledged,” Auwal was quoted as saying.

Auwal further said Kano remained one of the most important states not only in Nigeria, but on the African continent and getting the fight against corruption in the state “means a lot to Nigeria’s fight against corruption and the development of the continent”.

The letter reads, “This decision to establish the Kano State Anti-Corruption Institute is a symbol of the weight that the Kano state government places on the fight against corruption. We welcome the doggedness and commitment of Barrister Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado to that fight.”

It continues, “We will continue to support any development and efforts put forward by the state Anti-Corruption and Kano state government at large to combat corruption at all levels. The fight against corruption is an investment in the future of not only Kano state but Nigeria at large.”

The centre called on the Anti-Corruption agency to sustain the current tempo in the fight against corruption in the state, and also for the state government to ensure full implementation of the Anti-Corruption Institute.
