Why we suspended PCACC Chairman, Magaji – Kano Lawmakers


By News Desk

Kano State House of Assembly at its sitting today announced the suspension of the Executive Chairman of the Kano State Public Complain and Anti Corruption Commission (PCACC), Magaji, for a period of one month based on a petition received from the Office of the Accountant-General of the State in the Ministry of Finance for alleged refusal of the PCACC to accept a Chief Accountant posted to the Commission by the Office of the Accountant-General in a recent staff posting exercise.

The newly deployed chief accountant was reportedly rejected and even served with a rejection letter in that respect.

This necessitated the decision by the office of the Accountant-General to send a petition to the State House of Assembly for its intervention on the matter.

After series of deliberation on the floor of the House, the lawmakers “agreed to suspend the Chairman of the Public Complain and Anti Corruption Commission for one month to give way for the investigation on the subject matter.”

The members of the Committee comprises Hon Lawan Shehu, Chairman House Committee on Judiciary, Chairman House Committee on Public Account, Hon Salisu Ibrahim Doguwa, House Committee Chairman on Finance, Hon Magaji Dahiru Zarewa and Hon Sale Ahmad Marke, Chairman House Committee’s on Hajj, while the Committee has the Deputy Director (Legal) as Secretary and Secretary Public Account Committee as Co-secretary

The Committee was given two weeks within which to present its report on the finding to the Honourable House, a media statement by Uba Abdullahi, Chief Press Secretary Kano State House of Assembly, said.
