The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has lauded Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano for strengthening anti-corruption institutions.

Mr Tinubu gave the commendation on Sunday in Kano while inaugurating the Office of Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.

The APC leader, who lauded the governor for the restructured edifice, also praised him for his efforts in fighting corruption.

“This is a welcome development indeed, and we salute the governor for this encouraging effort,” said Mr Tinubu. He claimed that efforts like that of Mr Ganduje, once accused of collecting millions of dollars in bribes from contractors, would relieve Nigeria of the burden of corruption.

“In ensuring Nigeria becomes a member of a committed international community that frees us from the burden of corruption, this and similar edifices could play an important role in that.

“To a lot of us looking forward to a prosperous, corruption-free Nigeria and Africa, today is dedicated to that objective,” he pointed out.

In his remarks, Mr Ganduje stated that at the time his administration took over, the institution had achieved little.

He noted that he appointed a vibrant human rights activist, Muhuyi Rmin-Gado, to chair the agency.

“When he was appointed as the chairman, we made it very clear that there would be no interference in the activities of the agency and up till now, we have not interfered in any of its activities,” the governor added.

He explained that his administration would continue to support the anti-graft body for effective and efficient operations.

Mr Tinubu also inspected some other projects executed by the state government.
