The Kano governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has said his administration has donated N10 million to the organisers of the National Anti-Corruption Marathon.
Honouring President Muhammadu Buhari for his fight against corruption, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC); Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes (ICPC); Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN) and other stakeholders organised the first National Anti-Corruption Marathon.
Announcing the donation when he received members of the main organising committee in Abuja, Ganduje promised that the Kano state Public Complaints and Anti Corruption Commission would collaborate with the organizers, as an official partner, to ensure the success of the event.
“Before now, people find it difficult to access the services of the agency but we established offices across the 44 local government areas so that the services can be available to the common man,” he said.
“We also facilitated the recruitment of additional personnel and subjected them to training by professional agencies like EFCC and ICPC so that they can deliver. We also ensured cooperation with these agencies and that attracted international organizations to support us in reinforcing our anti-corruption system”, he added.
