Ganduje: IGP Egbetokun hailed for Kano anti-graft police withdrawal

Anthony, the coalition’s President, criticised the misuse of state resources by Governor Abba Yusuf’s administration in Kano.

A coalition of 1,000 Civil Society Organisations, represented by the Transparency Watch Initiative, has praised the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, for withdrawing police officers assigned to the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.

The coalition deem the action as crucial and well-timed, expressing concerns about the conduct of officers attached to the anti-corruption agency, which they believe requires investigation.

According to the group, the commission has been misused to target political opponents in Kano State, making the withdrawal of police personnel a significant step towards rectifying the anomalies.

During a press briefing in Abuja, Kolawole Anthony, the coalition’s President, criticised the misuse of state apparatus by Governor Abba Yusuf‘s administration in Kano.

He expressed concerns about the alleged diversion of state resources towards persecuting perceived adversaries rather than fulfilling governance duties.

Anthony urged Governor Yusuf to desist from expending taxpayers money on investigating his predecessor and the current National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje.

He emphasised that the state judiciary lacks the authority to prosecute Ganduje, as already determined by a court.

Anthony reiterated the coalition’s commendation for the withdrawal of police officers from the Kano anti-corruption commission, stressing the inappropriate involvement of law enforcement in political vendettas.
