Arraignment Of Kano PCAC Boss: Attack Against Anti-Corruption Fight, Groups Slam FG, CCB




Civil Society Organizations have criticized the Federal Government for initiating legal proceedings against Muhuyi Magaji, the Exec­utive Chairman of Kano State’s Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commis­sion, under the influence of the All-Progressive Congress (APC) party Chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, through the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).…CONTINUE READING

In a statement signed by Dr. Zikrillahi Ibrahim of CHRICED, Rafsanjani Au­wal Musa of CISLAC, Mo­hammed Bougei Attah of Procurement Observation and Advocacy Initiative and Olanrewaju Suraju of HEDA Resource Centre, representa­tives of the groups, asserted that the charges brought against the Kano State PCAC boss by the Code of Conduct Bureau were orchestrated by certain politicians with the intent to undermine the an­ti-corruption efforts in Kano State.

The statement highlighted the irony of the Code of Con­duct Bureau’s failure to take action against several poli­ticians, despite overwhelm­ing evidence, including the former governor of Kano State, who is now the current All-Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman.

It also questioned the un­precedented speed of investi­gations and charges against the Kano anti-corruption chairman, attributing it to a desire to shield corrupt prac­tices by the immediate past government of Kano State and divert attention from the anti-corruption drive in Kano.

The groups further called for a change in the leader­ship of the Code of Conduct Bureau as part of the broader reshuffling of leaderships of the anti-graft agencies by the Tinubu-led administration.


“The allegations against Muhuyi Magaji were dis­sected, with emphasis on the questionable nature of the bribery accusation involving the former Secretary to the State Government in Kano. This also raised doubts about the validity of the charges, questioning whether the Code of Conduct Bureau was the appropriate entity to address bribery allegations”.
