Labaran Magaji, the Nasarawa Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, says the state government is considering the establishment of an anti-corruption bureau to enhance the campaign against corruption.

Mr Magaji stated this when he led the ministry’s management team on a courtesy visit to the speaker of the state legislature, Ibrahim Abdullahi, in Lafia on Tuesday.

According to him, the visit was to familiarise himself with the house and seek more synergy to fast-track the administration of justice in the state.

“Sooner or later, Governor Abdullahi Sule will send a bill for the Establishment of Anti-corruption Bureau to the house,” said Mr Magaji.

“We hope that the bill will be given speedy consideration and passage if sent,” he said, seeking support and effective synergy from the house to enable him to succeed.

Mr Magaji commended the speaker and the lawmakers for their efforts in the state and the country.

Responding, Mr Abdullahi urged the commissioner to unravel the remote cause behind the incessant garnishment of the state government’s account and non-implementation of some laws passed by the house.

He said the trend affected the state negatively in the past, adding that “incessant garnishing of state government’s account is disturbing. What is causing the problem of garnishing the government’s account in the state?

“I want you to find the remote cause/causes for the garnishing of government accounts so that the state can find a lasting solution to it.

“We passed many laws which include executive and private member bills, many have been assented to by the previous and present governors, but the problem is non-implementation of some of these laws. So, I want you to address the matter,” he said.

While pledging support to the ministry, Mr Abdullahi lauded the commissioner for taking bold steps to ensure the quick administration of justice in the state.
