The Chairman of Kano Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission, Bar. Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado has vowed that corrupt public office holders must face the wrath of the law, even in the face of court orders stopping investigation and prosecution of those alleged to have tampered with public funds.
He told journalists that even though the Commission will keep abiding by the rule of law, nothing will deter it from getting the state rid of corrupt public office holders.
According to him, the Commission has a Court of Appeal judgment that allows it to investigate, not only executive members of government and agencies but, even those working in the judiciary.
He further stated that, “we are not deterred in all our investigations because we have weighty allegations against them, we have court of appeal judgment which empowers the Commission to investigate not only the staff or former executive members of Kano State executive arm of government but even those working in the judiciary.
“The court of appeal said the Commission has the powers without even writing a letter to the CJ to investigate a matter.
” So as far as we are concern they are only postponing the D-Day nothing would stop the state to prosecute or initiate criminal prosecution against any person ,because section 211 of the constitution is so explicit , so as far as we are concerned we are not deterred.
“I believe we are on course we will continue with our investigation and we will try as much as we can to get rid of corrupt practices to the best of our abilities.
“Court of appeal says the Commission has the power without even writing a letter to CJ to investigate not only former executive members of Kano state but even the judicial staff.”
