I Hate Corruption – Says Kwankwaso ~ Matters Arising
The formal governor of Kano State Mr Kwankwaso said he hates corruption and would not be a part of it. he said, “Many times people who sabotage the economy through stealing, nothing is done to them and they end up being with (in) the government.
Matters Arising learnt that, All these happenings in the NDDC is because the leaders are not vigilant enough. If the leaders are responsible and vigilant over the huge amount of money being released, even through borrowing, and which is later embezzled, the government would have prevented this,” the former governor added.
However, when asked why he could not expose the corrupt activities while in the NDDC, he said the “corrupt practices there were unprecedented” a lot of controversies have emerged in the commission in the past one month.
Due to criticisms of the operations of the commission, the president had in 2019 ordered a forensic audit of its operations from 2001 to 2019. The investigations so far, including another one being done by the Senate, have revealed misappropriation and outright diversion of critical funds meant to better the lot of the people in the largely impoverished region.
