The Center for Democracy and Development (CDD) held a one-day review meeting at Transcorp Hilton Abuja and had in attendance the representatives of Federal Anti-Corruption Agencies including the EFCC, ICPC, NFIU, TUGAR and PACAC with Jigawa State Ministry of Justice being the only State Ministry of Justice in attendance.
The theme of the meeting is to discuss and revisit the progress and challenges the agencies had witnessed from the support given to them by CDD in the fight against Corruption. Also to assess the outcome and identify areas that need further support and collaboration.
The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) being a non-profit organisation has been at the forefront of promoting democracy and good governance. As such, the organisation has been very supportive to Jigawa Ministry of Justice, through developing the Ministry’s Website, and showed commitments toward establishing the Public Complaints and anti-corruption commission in the State.
The Attorney General Dr Musa Adamu Aliyu, who was represented by the Ministry’s Assistant Director, Planning, Research and Statistics Barrister Mustapha Bello Adamu said “we have acknowledged the support given to us by CDD towards promoting transparency and accountability. Building the capacity of our staff, provision of ICT facilities and other technical support. We thank you, we look forward to more collaboration.”
He further explained the Case box application used by the Ministry in the tracking of all cases in courts, assessing the performance of the lawyers and other judicial activities.
The CDD is overwhelmed with the digital commitment by the jigawa Ministry of Justice, and showed interest for further support to ensure all institutional frameworks are put in place towards ensuring good governance and the fight against Corruption in jigawa state.
