Kano State Govt. to establish Due Process Agency – Ganduje



The Kano State Government is to establish a Due Process Agency as part of renewed effort to ensure transparency, accountability and good governance in the state, Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje, has said.

Ganduje dropped the hint on Sunday at a Town Hall meeting organised by the state government as part of activities to mark his administration’s 100 in office.
He said the decision to establish the agency was borne out of the administration’s resolve to check corrupt practices in governance.

According to him, a bill for the proposed agency will soon be presented to the state House of Assembly for necessary action.

The governor, who vowed to fight corruption in all ramifications, said the government would not spare anyone found in the crime.

“I want to assure the people of the state that my administration is committed to fighting corruption as anybody found in the act will be dealt with in accordance with the law,’’ he said.

According to him, it was this resolve that led to the restructuring of the state anti-corruption commission and appointment of a civil society activist to head it.

Ganduje, who restated the commitment of his administration towards the provision of the much needed infrastructure, said the state government would complete all ongoing projects initiated by his predecessor.

“Our administration is also committed to completion of capital projects at the North West University like the lecture halls and laboratories, among others,’’ he said.

In his remark, the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, charged leaders at all levels to discharge their duties with utmost fear of God, stressing that they would all stand before God to give account of their stewardship.

NAN reports that the meeting was attended by important personalities including politicians, top government officials, traditional rulers and members of the business community.
