A former Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Garba Mohammed Gadi, has said the in-coming All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the state has zero tolerance for corruption, mismanagement and theft.

He assured that the APC government in Bauchi will leave nothing to chance in seeing that justice was done wherever anybody was found wanting.

Gadi, who is also the Chairman of Bauchi State APC Technical Transition Committee set up by the Governor-elect, Mohammed Abubakar, said, however, that an APC government in the state has no intention of probing anybody. “In line with the statement of our mentor, General Muhammadu Buhari, APC is not going to probe anybody but at the same time, APC has zero tolerance on corruption, mismanagement and theft,” he said.

He, therefore, called on members of the State APC main and technical committees to live up to their responsibilities, assuring that they will not betray the confidence reposed in them. It would be recalled that Bauchi State Governor-elect, Abubakar, appointed two committees to facilitate factual and smooth transition from the Isa Yuguda-led administration to the new administration in the state. Terms of reference of the two committees include producing a comprehensive summary of the total revenue and expenditure of the state government from June 1, 2007 to May 29, 2015 and relate same with budgetary provisions over the period.
