The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission has renewed its commitment to tackling corruption and other social vices impeding the development of the country.
The Executive Chairman of the commission, Mr Muhuyi Rimingado, gave the assurance when he received Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje and members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) on a media tour to his office in Kano on Tuesday.
Rimingado said that the agency was committed to driving the governor’s anti-corruption agenda and other social vices which had affected the development of the country.
“We will not relent in our efforts to fight corruption, corrupt practices and maladministration,’’ he stated.
The chairman thanked members of the guild for the visit, saying “we are committed and determined to this cause”.
He however urged the media to sensitise the public on the dangers of corruption and also continue supporting government efforts at tackling corruption in the country.

In his remarks, former Gov. Olusegun Osoba of Ogun, who led the NGE delegation, commended Ganduje and the commission for their zeal in fighting corruption and also urged them to sustain the tempo.
