Sanusi: Magu, Kano anti-corruption boss meet behind closed door
Chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, Friday, held a closed-door meeting with Chairman, Kano state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado.
The meeting which held at the Kano zonal office of the EFCC along Hajj camp may not be unconnected with the ongoing investigation of Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, over controversial spendings.
It was earlier gathered that Kano State Government was contemplating Sanusi’s suspension.
In a chat with newsmen, Magu said: “this is the right time Nigeria will fight corruption because we have a good leader that is willing to fight it. If we fail to win the war now, I don’t think we will win it in the future.”
Magu appealed to Nigerians to support EFCC by exposing corrupt Nigerians through correct information”.
“The whistle blower policy states categorically that anyone that gives genuine information, will be rewarded and if he gives wrong information he will be punished accordingly,” he said.
He assured Nigerians that the commission would recover more looted funds.
On his part, Magaji Rimingado said the EFCC boss had offered him some words of encouragement regarding fight against corruption.
Rimingado said, “This is not the first time we met and each time we met, he will encourage me to be just in discharging my duty.
“He advised me to always ensure that I operate within the ambit of laws. He also appreciates what we are doing in Kano.”
