Kwankwaso – I resigned from NDDC due to corruption
Former governor of Kano State, Rab’iu Kwankwaso, on Saturday said he resigned from the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) in 2010 due to the rampant corrupt practices in many government agencies.
He said this was as a result of the failure of the leadership of these agencies.
Mr Kwankwaso, a former presidential aspirant, resigned from the board of the NDDC in 2010.
Mr Kwankwaso also said he resigned his appointment because of official corrupt practices in the commission “that he doesn’t want to take part in”.
The former governor told BBC Hausa that the rampant corruption in the NDDC “was due to greed and desperate moves by government officials to accumulate wealth”.
Mr Kwankwaso has equally been accused of graft in the past.
Daily Trust reported how a petition was written against the former governor to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over an alleged diversion of N3.8 billion local government funds in the 2015 general election.
