Kano Anti-Corruption Agency Boss, Muhyi Magaji Rimingado
The Chairman of the Kano Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission, Barrister Muhuyi Magaji Rimin-Gado says the fight against corruption in the country occasionally runs into bottlenecks as the accused accumulates more power.
The Anti-Corruption Agency's boss said this at the 32nd Anti-corruption Situation Room (ACSR), organized by the Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA), held in Kano on Tuesday.
He said common Nigerians are the ones bearing the brunt of corruption in the country as a result of the fact that the “people accused of corrupt practices are becoming more and more powerful in the country.”
His statement could be connected to the emergence of former Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as APC National Chairman despite corruption charges against him.
On his part, the Former Executive Secretary, of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Sadiq Isah Radda advised the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to concentrate on politicians only in asset declaration.
Radda, who was the Chairman of the occasion, noted that most of the activities of the CCB are centred around politicians.
According to him, for the CCB to fight corruption squarely, judges, civil servants and members of the National Assembly should be included in the asset declaration, Kano Focus reported.
