Muhyi Rimingado, the Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, is being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Code of Conduct Bureau for his stewardship during the administration of the disgraced former Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Rimingado, who is investigating Ganduje, now the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, for alleged corruption in connection with a viral video showing the ex-governor allegedly receiving dollar kickbacks from a contractor, had vowed to investigate the video and bring Ganduje to justice if found guilty.
While the EFCC asked Rimingado in a letter obtained by our correspondent on Saturday to direct the PCACC’s Director of Finance and Accounts to appear for an interview at its headquarters in Jabi, Abuja, on August 29, a correspondent from the CCB, also seen by our Sunday PUNCH, asked for documents pertaining to his stewardship.
Both federal agencies requested financial documents and information about forfeited properties from the PCACC’s chair.
“In view of the above, you are requested to kindly release the Director of Finance and Accounts to report for an interview with the undersigned through the team leader AFF/TC at Plot 301/302 Institution and Research District Jabi, along Airport Road, Abuja on Monday, 29th August, 2023 by 10:00 hours,” the EFCC letter read.
“He should come along with the following information; details of total funds released to your office by the Office of the Accountant General of Kano state from 2019 to 2021 fiscal year.
“Details of total funds released to your office by the Kano state ministry of local government from 2019 to 2021 including contracts executed and details of beneficiary accounts,” the correspondence added.
