The governor of Sokoto State Aminu Tambuwal has emphasised the need to depoliticize the fight against corruption in the country.
Tambuwal who made the assertion on Monday, insisted that strengthening of institutions remains the best way to effectively fight corruption to a standstill.
The governor stated that much at the Government House in Sokoto During the signing of Memorandum of Understanding between Sokoto State Government and the United Nations (UN) on the 2019 UN Sustainable Development Partnership framework work plan.
