Haruna Tukur, FCT- Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal today called on the National Assembly to look into the laws establishing the Independent Corrupt Practices and
Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC
and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Governor Tambuwal made this call while inaugurating the new ICPC complex in the Sokoto State.
Tambuwal stated that the call had become neccesary owing to the fact that there was need to strengthen the process of petitioning by ensuring that petitions were backed by an affidavit,
photograph, and signature of the petitioner.
This is because, these agencies wasted time investigating frivolous petitions which possessed no substance this distracting the agencies from truly fighting corruption.
With such a measure, the governor stated that those who felt they could use the agencies to witch-hunt people will not have such avenues to do so.
