Kano Assembly ignites Gov. Ganduje probe over bribe videos
The Kano state House of Assembly has commenced probe of Governor Umar Abdullahi Ganduje. The governor has been seen on trending videos that flooded the internet over the weekend collecting bribe from people suspected to be contractors. The video was published by Daily Nigerian and another one was released on Monday, October 15. Daily Nigerian reports that the legislative house is now investigating the videos and may push for the governor’s impeachment.

Raising a matter of urgent public importance in the House earlier today, a member representing Warawa Constituency, Labaran Madari, said the assembly should investigate the authenticity of the video and take measures. Madari said the videos had brought the institution of governance in the state to disrepute, and therefore the need for the legislators to take urgent action. The matter was seconded by Baffa Dan’Agundi, a member representing Kano Municipal. Responding, the speaker, Alhassan Rurum, constituted a seven-man committee to investigate the matter and report back to the assembly.

Members of the committee include Baffa Dan’Agundi (Kano Municipal) as chairman; Labaran Madari (Warawa) member; Garba Gafasa (Ajingi), member; and Zubairu Masu, (Sumaila) member. Others are Ayuba Labaran (Kabo) member; Abubakar Galadima (Bebeji), member; Garba Yau Gwarmai (Kunchi/Tsanyawa), member and; Mujtafa Amin, secretary.

The report noted that the assembly is planning to serve the governor impeachment notice as soon as the committee submits its report. Multiple contractors who spoke with Daily Nigerian on the condition of anonymity said the governor personally receives from 15 to 25 percent kickbacks for every project executed in the state. The Kano state government had earlier reacted to the report, dismissing the videos as fake. A statement sent to NAIJ.com by the Kano state commissioner for information, Malam Muhammad Garba, said the report was written with a clear view to blackmail and extort the governor.
