A coalition of anti-corruption groups in Nigeria has called for transparency in the investigation of the chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC), Barrister Muhyi Rimingado.
In a joint statement on Friday signed by Olanrewaju Suraju of HEDA, Auwalu Musa Rafsanjani of CISLAC, David Ugolor of ANEEJ, Ibrahim M. Zikrullahi of CHRICED, and Muhammed Attah of PRADIN, the groups said they were concerned about the timing of the investigation, which comes after the PCACC launched an inquiry into the alleged financial misconduct of the previous administration led by Abdullahi Ganduje.
The groups said they believed the investigation was politically motivated and urged the EFCC and CCB to carry out their duties with “unwavering professionalism and integrity, free from any form of political interference.”
They also called on the PCACC, the EFCC, and the CCB to foster a spirit of collaboration in their individual anti-corruption pursuits.
The groups said they remained optimistic that the involved agencies would uphold the highest standards of professionalism and make substantial contributions to the realization of a corruption-free Kano State.
