Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has directed a full scale investigation into financial management and other government transactions by the former Accountant General Hajia Aisha Bello.
The state Commissioner for Information Mallam Mohammad Garba, said in a statement in Kano yesterday that the governor ordered the state anti-corruption commission to investigate contract payments, salary payments and salary deductions, among others.
Ganduje however applauded Hajia Aisha Bello for her service to the state while accepting her resignation.
The governor appointed the Director Treasury in the Ministry of Finance, Malam Shehu Abbas Mu’azu, as the Acting Accountant General.
In another development, the state government yesterday said that the administration of former governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso left behind a debt of over N850 million owed various media organisations in the country.
Briefing newsmen about the outcome of the successful national conference on hate speech in Kano by Nigeria Union of Journalists in his office, the state Commissioner of information, Youth and Culture Malam Muhammad Garba, said the huge amount of money was for various adverts, recorded and live programmes and announcements by the immediate past administration.
Muhammad Garba said Kwankwaso was alleged to have used the money within six months to secure his nomination as the APC presidential candidate, putting the media organisations in a very difficult situation due to lack of payments of their adverts and other sponsored programmes
He, however explained that despite the financial situation of the country, the state government is gradually paying the affected media organisations to continue playing their role as watchdog of the society for strengthening of democracy.
He therefore thanked the media organisations for their patience and understanding as the government is making efforts to settle all their outstanding payments.
The commissioner added the administration of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje will continue to work closely with media organisations to enable them discharge their constitutional responsibilities.
