The probe of the Kano Emirate Council for alleged ‘questionable expenditures and financial misappropriation’ has no political undertone.
This clarification was provided by the chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (KSPCAC), Muhiyi Magaji, on Tuesday.
He said the decision to probe the council is predicated on a need to ensure fairness and to carry out its mandate as established by the law.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the commission head wondered at the questioning of the reason behind the investigation
He, thereafter, expressed his resolve saying “I will not succumb to any pressure not even from the governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje. I will discharge my duties without fear or favour because I know I will account for my actions in the hereafter.
“Until and until the allegations of the whistleblowers are established or otherwise, people should not pre-empt the investigation”.
The anti-graft agency has extended an invite to the Emirate Council. It is expected to appear before it on May 2 to answer questions on the allegedly misappropriated N6bn.
