EFCC's Magu In Kano For Sanusi-gate.

The (EFCC) chairman, Ibrahim Magu, yesterday met in Kano with his counterpart from the state Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado.

The chairmen of the two anti-corruption agencies met in closed-door at the Kano zonal office of the EFCC along Hajj camp in the state metropolis.

Though both men refused to disclose what they discussed, it was gathered that the meeting might not be unconnected with the ongoing investigation of Kano emirate council which started recently.

After the meeting, the EFCC boss 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.”

He asked Nigerians to support EFCC by exposing corrupt Nigerians through whistle blowing. He however, warned that public should be sure of the information they give to the agency.

He said “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”.

On the National Assembly/Presidency dispute, the chairman said the misunderstanding had never affected his job; rather it gingered him to do his best in discharging his duty.

Speaking further, he assured Nigerians:
"that the commission would do all it could to recover more looted funds, stressing his hope is to succeed in the fight against corruption under the Buhari-led administration.

Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption said the EFCC boss offered him some words of encouragement regarding fight against corruption.

He 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.”

He said Kano anti-corruption agency was a sister agency to the EFCC, as according to him while the EFCC was fighting corruption at the federal level, Kano anti-corruption was doing same at the state level.

He said the anti-corruption agency would soon introduce its whistle blower police where whistle blowers would be rewarded for exposing corrupt people.
