The Zamfara State House of Assembly has assured of its readiness and determination to fight corruption to the core, saying that the menace of bribery and corruption has posed a lot of challenges to the economic and developmental growth of the state.

The Speaker of the House, Nasiri Mu’azu Magarya, disclosed this while receiving an audience from the executive members of two non-governmental organisations, Muryar Talaka Awareness Initiative and Arewa Research and Development Centre, who organised a rally as part of activities marking a global war against corruption.

Magarya, who was represented at the occasion by the Deputy House Leader and Chairman, House Committee on Justice and Judiciary, Hon Nasiru Bello Lawal Bungudu, said both the House and the two respected NGOs are on the same page in the quest of fighting corruption in the state.

He further explained that the 6th Assembly under his leadership has succeeded in passing more than 40 bills into law, which include the scrapping of jumbo pay for former governors and their deputies, former speakers and their deputies, which he said the House viewed as corrupt tendencies.

The Speaker also stated that the House had since passed into law Bureau of Public Procurement formally known as Due Process with the sole aim of awarding contracts and doing government business transparently.

The number one lawmaker in the state told the gathering that as the world marks war against corruption to match the word with action, the House has passed into law the much-waited anti-corruption law.

Earlier speaking the state coordinator of the Muryar Talaka Awareness Initiative, Comrade Hafizu Balarabe, said corruption has become a serious menace in the state hence the need to fight it head-on.

He commended the courage of the Magarya-led House of Assembly for attaining this height of credible legislation and urge the House to maintain the tempo.

Also speaking, the state Director of Arewa Research and Development Project, Mustapha Hassan Musa, said the global crusade of a total fight against corruption is a fight for all, appealing that all hands must be on deck to block all traces that will lead to corruption.

In his remarks, a permanent commissioner in the state anti-corruption commission, Malam Naziru Ibrahim Budah, said his commission will not relent its efforts in fighting corruption, saying the issue is a noble course.

The event was attended by the clerk of the House, Alhaji Shehu Saidu Anka, his Deputy, Mallam Mahmud Aliyu, amongst others.
