N10bn borrowers programme for farmers hijacked – Kano anti-corruption boss raises alarm

Alhaji Muhuyi Rimin-Gado, the Chairman, Kano State Public Complaints and Anti- Corruption Commission, has raised the alarm over alleged fraud in rice production policy.

Rimin-Gado made the statement on Friday in Kano after meeting with the leadership of Rice Processors Association of Nigeria (RIPAN), Kano State chapter.

The chairman urged the President Muhammadu Buahri government to step up measures that would strengthen rice production policy in Kano State and the country in general.

He disclosed that N10 billion Anchor Borrowers Programme that was meant for real farmers at the grassroots in the state was diverted and only few farmers benefited.‎

Rimingado warned that the good policy of the government was hijacked by corrupt people who disbursed funds to fake farmers.

He added that the loan recovery was poor in the state because the money was distributed to the wrong set of people who are not farmers.‎

The anti-corruption boss said that the commission would take the case to the Federal Government because the jurisdiction of agency was limited to Kano State, NAN reports.

Rimingado further attributed the scarcity of paddy rice to fraud.

He, however, stressed that the anti-corruption body was doing everything within its power to ensure that stolen resources were recovered and returned. ‎‎
