Shekarau made this known while speaking with newsmen in Kano on Friday on the occasion of his 60th birthday.

Shekarau, who is also a former governor of Kano State, said he was in support of the Federal Government’s fight against corruption.

“When we were in government, we put in place all necessary measures to check corrupt practices.

“There was no contract of any project awarded which did not follow due process; I am totally in support of the crusade but there should be fairness,’’ he said.

He noted that the current fight against corruption in the country could only succeed if there was fairness.

“There has to be due process and I hope there will be no segregation in the fight,’’ Shekarau said.

The former minister also said that for President Buhari’s Government to succeed in tackling the security challenges, it had to address four fundamental issues.

He listed the issues as welfare of security agents; training and retraining of security personnel; equipping the personnel and addressing their pension matters.

“I pray that the Government will address the fundamental issues raised,’’ he said
