Kano Assembly Suspends Anti-corruption Agency Chairman
Without strong watchdog institutions, impunity becomes the very foundation upon which systems of corruption are built. And if impunity is not demolished, all efforts to bring an end to corruption are in vain. Kano State House of Assembly has suspended the chairman of Kano State Public Complaint & Anti-Corruption Commission Muhuyi Magaji Rimin-Gado.
Rimini-Gado is suspended for one month for refusing to accept a level four civil servant deployed to the commission as a financial officer.
A motion moved by the majority leader, Labaran Abdul Madara, at the plenary where the house unanimously directed the committee on anti-corruption to investigate the allegation and report to the house in two weeks.
The embattled anti-graft boss recently rejected the accounting officer insisted the action contravened extant laws establishing the commission.

Rimini-Gado, who had earlier raised alarm over what he considered undue interference of government’s in the affairs of the commission, vowed to refute any attempted incursion on its independence.
It takes as little as 1% of a population to create a positive change, and I believe that if 100 million people underwent a personal transformation in the direction of peace, harmony, laughter, love, kindness, and joy … the world would be transformed. We implore the house to please handle this matter amicably.
