Inquiry commissions aimed at transparency not witch-hunting — Governor Yusuf

Inquiry commissions aimed at transparency not witch-hunting

Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has revealed that the two inquiry commissions established by his administration were primarily aimed at fostering transparency and accountability, rather than targeting political opponents.

He revealed this when he received the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero, who paid the traditional homage at Government House as part of the “Hawan Nassarawa” activities, on Friday.

According to the governor, the panels were set up to ensure transparency and accountability in government and to tackle the menace of political violence in the state.

Recall that Abdullahi Ganduje, Yusuf’s predecessor, had said the probe was targeted at him, wondering why it was limited to his two terms and not extended to the period when Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, Yusuf’s benefactor, governed the state.

Governor Yusuf reiterated his commitment to investigating and holding accountable those involved in political violence, regardless of their political affiliations.

"Government would not spare anybody, irrespective of their political parties.”

He added that the exercise is to end the political violence that led to the loss of lives and destruction of property to place the state on the path of economic and political development.

Yusuf promised to work hand in hand with the emirate while noting their contribution and cooperation with the government.
