Malami made the commendation at a special dinner organised by the state government for the minister and top brass of the Federal Ministry of Justice at Africa House, Government House, Kano.

The top management of the Federal Ministry of Justice was in Kano for their annual management retreat with the theme ‘Enhancing Systems and Structures in the Federal Ministry of Justice for Effective Justice Sector Service Delivery.

According to Malami, “When Federal Government came up with the issue of fight against corruption and justice sector reform, Kano followed suit. So also in the area of the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) strengthening system, Kano followed suit.

“Kano State needed to be commended for all the successes recorded in the justice sector. We have seen Kano matching side by side with the Federal Government in the area of infrastructural development in the judiciary. This is commendable.”

While assuring that, the choice of Kano was not accidental, he noted that “Kano has consolidated the spirit of the retreat. We are not disappointed with our choice of Kano for the retreat.”

Earlier, Ganduje told the minister that, Kano has invested so much in justice reform and transformed the administration of justice with critical investment in infrastructure.

Revealing that, “We are trying to assist the judiciary so that the administration of justice can be in compliance with the global best practice. That is part of the reason why we are also making the sector to be digital.”

The statement signed by Abba Anwar, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Kano State, said Ganduje pledged to sustain development in the judicial system and ensure financial independence as cardinal to separation of power.
