Ganduje summoned over dollar video, APC kicks

 

The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) has issued a summons to Abdullahi Ganduje, the immediate past governor of Kano State, for questioning regarding a controversial video involving dollars.

During an interview on Thursday’s edition of Channels Television’s Lunchtime Politics, Muhyi Magaji, the Chairman of the Commission, announced this development, stating, “I have just signed an invitation letter for him (Ganduje) to appear next week as required by the law.”

However, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has advised Ganduje to disregard the invitation from the anti-graft commission, asserting that the investigation is politically motivated by the administration of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the state.

In a statement co-signed by Abdulahi Abbas, the Chairman of the party in Kano, and Zakari Sarina, the APC Secretary, the party emphasized that the case is currently before a court of law and suggested that there is a malicious scheme to tarnish the image of the former governor.

“The detractors are orchestrating this campaign of defamation to create a division between President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Ganduje, who is one of the President’s most influential allies in the North,” stated the APC in Kano.

Back in 2017, the online publication Daily Nigerian released several videos allegedly showing Ganduje receiving bribes from contractors. The former governor vehemently denied the allegations, claiming that the videos had been doctored.
