We Have Power To Prosecute Public Office Holder – Muhuyi Magaji

The Chairman of Kano State Anti- Graft Agency, Barrister Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado has said that the Commission would not relent in exercising it’s constitutional powers to investigate and prosecute any corruption case in Kano State.

Speaking with journalists in Kano Muhuyi said, 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.

” 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.

” So as far as we are concern they are only postponding 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.”

Rimin Gado further explained that, nothing would stop the Commission from investigating any person allegedly found with corrupt cases in the state.

“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”
