Kwankwaso recalls his experience in NDDC, reveals why he couldn’t expose corruption there
Rab’iu Kwankwaso, the former Governor of Kano State, has finally made it clear on why he could not expose corruption in the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, in 2010.
Kwankwaso who is also a former lawmaker disclosed that he resigned from the Commission’s board in 2010 due to what he described as rampant corrupt practices in many government agencies.
Speaking in a BBC Hausa program on Saturday, Kwankwaso blamed the leadership of these agencies for the corrupt practices.
When asked why he did not expose the corrupt practices in the commission, Kwankwaso, said, the “corrupt practices there were unprecedented,” adding “that he didn’t want to take part in.”
He said it “was due to greed and desperate moves by government officials to accumulate wealth”.
On allegations of corruption made against him, he denied, saying, “I hate corruption.
“Many times people who sabotage the economy through stealing, nothing is done to them and they end up being with (in) the government.
“All these happenings in the NDDC is because the leaders are not vigilant enough.”
