Ganduje To Appear Before Kano House Of Assembly Ad-Hoc Committee Probing Bribe Taking Allegation
The embattled governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, is to appear before Kano State House of Assembly ad-hoc committee probing the bribe-taking videos of the governor, according to a report by Daily Nigerian.
Be reminded that it had earlier been reported on videos between October 14 and 15, exclusively published by Daily Nigerian showing Mr Ganduje receiving bribe in dollars from a contractor.
As a result of the dust raised by the videos, the Assembly set up a committee on October 15 to establish the genuineness of the videos.
The publisher/editor-in-chief of Daily Nigerian had already testified before the committee on October 15, insisting that the videos were genuine.
Insiderswho would want to remain anonymous told Daily Nigerian that the governor is expected to appear before the committee on Friday.
Sources told Daily Nigerian that the governor held a meeting with the speaker of the House of Assembly, Kabiru Rurum, and some top government officials on Tuesday.
During the meeting, insiders said the governor pleaded with the speaker not to invite him to testify before the committee.
“The governor was angry with the speaker as he refused to be part of the cover up. “But the removal of the speaker appears very difficult as he has the control of more than two third of the house.”
