KANO — Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the Governor of Kano State, is to appear before lawmakers at the State House of Assembly on Friday, over allegation of bribery made against him.
Baffa Danagundi, chairman of a seven-man committee set to investigate the allegations of collecting bribe from contractors by Governor Ganduje wrote him to say he is “required as part of the proceedings.”
The panel has already heard from Jaafar Jaafar, the publisher of the Daily Nigerian Newspaper, who has released three out of 15 “videos cliffs,” which shows the Governor collecting money in dollars.
Mr Jafar said the video he first watched in 2016 was not doctored as the Governor claimed.
At the investigative hearing that took place last month (October 25), the publisher said: “I received the video clips from a whistle blower who has been complaining to me, claiming that Ganduje is of the habit of collecting percentage from contractors.
“I could not believe him until when he presented the video clips to me, which he said was recorded with a camera fixed on his cloth.”
Despite the video evidence presented by Mr Jafaar, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission led by Ibrahim Mustafa Magu has turned a blind eye to the allegation made against Governor Ganduje.

Staff at the Commission told DENISAURUS News they have received plenty petition request for them to investigate the matter.
However, Mr Magu, described as a perennial offender, is said to be “uninterested in fighting loyalist of President Muhammadu Buhari, even if they are caught stealing.”
