We make reference to the presss conference held by Kano Emirate Council on Monday, 24th April 2017 in which the Council made clarifications on allegations of financial embezzlement laid against by section of the media. We noted that the Council, in the said press conference, disclosed that N6.527 billion been 3% deduction on total statutory allocations of 44 LGAs in Kano plus 10% of total LGAs contributions from the state government, from January 2012 - September 2016 were withheld and not remitted to the coffers of the Emirate Council in breach of the extant Law establishing the Emirate Council Fund of 2004.
We therefore entertain the fear that the unremitted N6.527 billion was diverted by MDAs of Kano State Government in violation of the law.
In view of the foregoing, we appeal to your good offices to investigate the alleged diversion of N6.527 billion of Kano Emirate Council's monies by Ministry of Local Government Affairs, Office of the Accountant General of Kano State and relevant MDAs to verify the allegation; and take steps to prosecute persons culpable in line with the law.
