The Chairman, Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Chairman, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, on Tuesday said, he is ready to report to police or appear before a court of law been response to a warrant of arrest served on him and to give his testimony in respect of a trial involving the immediate past Accountant General of the state, Hajiya Aisha Mohammed Bello.
In a swift reaction on the lingering face off between him and a high court judge in the State, Rimingado told reporters that, contrary to speculations that he traveled out of Kano to avoid been arrested by the police as ordered by a High Court sitting in Gezawa local government, the embattled anti-corruption chairman equivocally denied such speculation and that he was available and would not run away from fighting for justice.
According to him, “I am heading a commission that is fighting for justice to be done to other people and as such I will never run away from justice.
The commission, the police and the court are all operating within the ambit of the law. The three organizations are serving the same purpose which is protecting the interest of the governed.”
The chairman, who was responding to a court order issued by a state high court judge, Justice Mohammed Yahaya, ordering the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police to arrest him, assured that hewould always be ready and available to report to the police or appear before the court whenever the need arises.
He, however, reaffirmed that nothing would deter him from discharging his responsibilities as chairman of the commission, saying he would spare nobody when it comes to issue of investigation.
In a related development, the Coalition of Kano State Civil Society Organisations Against Corruption has described as unfortunate the recent misunderstanding between the anti-corruption and the state judiciary, noting that the two institutions were vital in the crusade against corruption, hence, the two parties should work in harmony to avoid any possible friction.
Addressing a press conference on behalf of over 20 CSOs in Kano on Tuesday, Isyaku Ahmed, said the coalition was 100 per cent in support of independence of judiciary, legislative and executives.
“We are solidly behind the Kano state anti-corruption efforts in the fight against the menace of corruption. While we recognized the rights of the court to summon the anti-corruption chairman as witness or defendant as the case may be, we strongly called on both parties to conduct themselves within the dictates of the law,” he said.
The coalition, therefore, appealed to the state executive council and the judiciary to treat this matter with utmost care so that the integrity of the Kano state Anti-Corruption Commission will not be affected.
