Following a trending video revealing the Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduaje caught receiving multiple bundles of dollars as bribes, the state house of assembly has set up a committee to investigate the alleged bribe scandal.
The video which was exclusively published by Daily Nigeria on Sunday has generated a lot of reactions from Nigerians.
Various talks from different quarters indicate the developing bribe scandal emanating from the All Progressives Congress (APC) control state is a huge dent on president Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade.
In the video trending online, the Kano State governor, Ganduje appeared to be collecting bundles of dollars from individuals set to be contractors.
Raising a motion on Monday, Labaran Madari, a member representing Warawa constituency, said the assembly should investigate the authenticity of the video and take necessary actions.
Madari said the videos had brought the institution of governance in the state to disrepute.
The matter was seconded by Baffa Dan’Agundi, a member representing Kano municipal.
Alhassan Rurum, speaker of the house, therefore, constituted a seven-man committee to investigate the matter and report back to the assembly.
Members of the committee include Baffa Dan’Agundi, Labaran Madari, Garba Gafasa, Zubairu Masu, Ayuba Labaran, Abubakar Galadima, Garba Yau Gwarmai and Mujtafa Amin.
