Local Government officials in Kano State have been urged to be mindful of transparency and accountability in discharging their responsibilities.

The state Commissioner for Local Government, Alhaji Murtala Sule Garo made the call during a four-day sensitisation workshop for elected and appointed local government officials organised by the ministry in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) held in Kano.

He explained that the state government’s zero tolerance posture on corruption was what encouraged the collaboration with the commission to organise the workshop.

The commissioner, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Alhaji Sule Ado Minjibir, assured of the state and local government councils commitment to ensuring good governance and social well being at the grassroots.

Earlier, the ICPC Commissioner in Kano, Zayyanu Almu Dan Musa had explained that the workshop was designed to inculcate and entrench the culture of transparency and accountability in the local government administrations, maintaining that series of strategies have been developed to guide public office holders against misappropriation of public resources, according to Faruk Ghali Masanawa, the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry.
