The Bauchi State Governor, Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar, has set up a committee  to undertake a forensic audit of all contracts, expenditure and appointments made in all MDAs from May 2007 to May 2015.

This was contained in statement issued by the Press Secretary to the Governor, Abubakar Al-Sadique and copies made available to newsmen in Bauchi on Monday.

The appointment of the forensic auditing  under the chairmanship of Alhaji Salihu Lukman is based on the Governor’s resolved to instill accountability and discipline as prerequisites for good governance.

According to him, corruption has eaten deeply into the nation’s socio-economic and political life when his administration came into power, but said that in line with the anti corruption policy of the APC, his administration will not relent in its fight against corruption in public life until sanity is restored.

The statement, it was against this backdrop that on assumption of office, one of the key areas he paid priority attention to was fighting corruption by appointing a committee for the recovery of illegally taken government property.

Governor Abubakar also commended President Muhammad Buhari for his determination and commitment in fighting insurgency in the North East sub region.

He charged public officers to play the appropriate role in highlighting the things that unite Nigerians not those few things that artificially divided us.
