Bala said the development was part of his administration’s efforts to take advantage of the federal structure enshrined in the constitution that gives states the latitude to replicate functions.

“As usual, no corruption case will be overlooked in Bauchi state. Today, I backed it up by signing into law the Establishment of the Bauchi State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission.

“Establishing the Commission is part of my administration’s readiness to take advantage of the federal structure enshrined in the Constitution that gives states the latitude to replicate functions,” he said.

“This is another milestone in my administration’s drive towards strengthening transparency and accountability in the state,” Bala said.
