Breaking News: Kano donates N10m to EFCC, ICPC, AFN


Kano state government has donated N10m to the organisers of the National Anti-Corruption Marathon, the state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, said.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes, (ICPC), Athletic Federation of Nigeria, AFN and other stakeholders organized the first National Anti-Corruption Marathon, in honour of President Muhammadu Buhari, for his fight against corruption.
Announcing the donation when he received members of the main organizing committee in Abuja, Governor Ganduje promised that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti Corruption Commission would collaborate with the organizers, as an official partner, to ensure success of the event.
He said his administration was not only engaged in sensitising the citizenry on the evils of corruption but also reorganized 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 organizations to support us in reinforcing our anti-corruption system”, he said.
The governor stated that as a result of the renewed professional and vigour of the state Anti-corruption agency, highly placed individuals such as Permanent Secretaries in the state civil service and a commissioner were removed and prosecuted for involvement in fraudulent practices.
