Kano anti-graft commission summons former Governor Ganduje over controversial dollar video, APC kicks


The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) has summoned the immediate past governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje, for interrogation over a controversial dollar video.

Chairman of the commission, Muhyi Magaji, stated this on Channels Television’s Lunchtime Politics on Thursday.

“I just signed an invitation letter for him (Ganduje) to appear next week because this is what the law says,” he said.

However, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state told Ganduje to disregard the invitation by the anti-graft commission, saying the probe is politically motivated by the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) administration in the state.

In a statement on Thursday co-signed by the chairman of the party in Kano, Abdulahi Abbas; and APC secretary, Zakari Sarina, the party said the matter is before a court of law, and there is “a sinister ploy to dent the image of the former governor.”

“The detractors are engaged in this campaign of calumny to draw a wedge between President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Ganduje, one of the president’s strongest allies in the North,” the APC in Kano said.

In 2017, online publication, Daily Nigerian, released some videos of Ganduje allegedly receiving bribe from contractors. The then-governor had denied the allegation, saying the videos were doctored.
