Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor of Kano State, has finally fired Muhuyi Rimingado, the suspended chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission.

The state government suspended Mr Rimingado in July 2021, shortly after opening an investigation into contracts allegedly awarded to companies linked to the governor’s family.

According to a letter sent to Mr Rimingado by the secretary to the state government, Usman Alhaji, the state governor relied on the State House of Assembly’s July 2021 resolution to remove him from office.

“Following the resolution adopted by Kano State House of Assembly at its sitting held on Monday 26th July, 2021 (16, Zhul-Hijja, 1442AH) calling on the State Government to, with immediate effect remove you as the Executive Chairman, Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission on account of some alleged offences, I wish to convey the approval of His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Kano State, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje OFR of your dismissal from your position of the Executive Chairman, Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission with immediate effect.

“The dismissal is in accordance with the provisions of Section 6 of Public Complaints and Anti- Corruption Commission Law 2008 as amended.

“Accordingly, you are hereby formally issued with the dismissal letter. Please accept my best wishes and esteemed regards,” the letter read.

When contacted for comment, Mr Rimingado criticized the governor’s decision, claiming that the government had failed to follow the National Industrial Court’s ruling.

“This goes to show how insensitive, reckless and lawless the Ganduje’s-led administration is, especially as regards to issues bordering on anti-corruption effort in the state”

“This issue has been tried and judgement pass in my favor by the National industrial Court Abuja, and instead of them to comply with or appeal the judgement, they now think they can cheaply resort to self help after suffering defeat in the legal battle.

“This is an afterthought. Everything contained in the said judgement. I am therefore in contact with my team. We’ll take legal measures to remind them that rule of law prevails over and about impunity,” Mr Rimingado added.

Speaker of the ECOWAS Parliament, Dr. Sidie Mohammed Tunis, has pledged his unflinching support for the ECOWAS Female Parliamentarians Association Network ECOFEPA in its attempts to increase participation for self-development in politics and entrepreneurship.

Speaker Tunis who stated this at the formal opening of ECOFEPA Women and Youth Leadership symposium, on the sidelines of the Extraordinary Session of the ECOWAS Parliament in Guinea Bissau, with the theme: Unleashing the potentials of Women and Youth in Politics and Entrepreneurship; asserted that the meeting epitomizes the action stage for women’s involvement in decision-making bodies.

He also commended ECOFEPA for always beaming their search light on issues that affect women and youth in the ECOWAS Sub-region and for firmly reinforcing the need to mentor the next generation of decision makers to bridge existing gaps and bestow sound political and decision-making legacies to them, reaffirming that until they as Members of Parliament replicate ourselves in the younger generation in multiple dimensions to deliver a democratic system that is anchored on good governance and societal growth and development, they cannot credit themselves for success.

Dr. Tunis acknowledged that the event amplifies ECOFEPA’s deliberate resolve to consistently pursue the dreams of its founding Members and recommend for members of Parliament to track generational transfer of knowledge, skills and all it takes to tackle the challenges of the future ahead.

In her address, the 2nd Vice President of ECOFEPA, Madam Gabriella Fernandes, commended the ECOWAS Commission for its outstanding support in enhancing the activities of the association to achieve its goals for women’s integration and empowerment in politics.

She said that the resources mobilized by the ECOWAS Commission will allow the association to host its upcoming symposium in Togo March 2023.

Hon. Fernandes reiterated that the symposium will spark the beginning of efforts to launch their projects and synchronize activities in the areas of leadership and entrepreneurship, which have the propensity to boomerang and catapult women’s advancement into decision-making in the ECOWAS region.

Earlier, the Youth Representative for the West Africa Youth Assembly, Mamadu Djalo, said everyone is aware of the social pressure and barriers that women and youth face daily, in trying to climb up to the political power, and employed men in Africa who control the political powers, to ensure that such power is balanced.

According to Djalo, Women and youth are very isolated for too long, and that there is need for the men to work together with both youth and Women to fill the sense of belonging, as the deliberation cannot be realistic without the participation of the youth and women.

She therefore called for the creation of a youth parliament in order to give them a voice.
