Gandollar Saga: Yusuf pursues Ganduje’s dollar video for state prosecution



Abba Kabir Yusuf

Kano State Governor, Alhaji Abba Yusuf, has challenged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to hasten the release of the forensic reports on the alleged dollar video clip involving the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman, and a former governor of Kano State, Dr. Umar Ganduje.

Governor Yusuf insisted that the forensic report’s release would finally silence Ganduje.

This is also why Yusuf stated that Ganduje’s eight-year tenure represented failure and maladministration.

Governor Yusuf, in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, and made available to journalists on Sunday, alleged that Ganduje shamelessly spoke about non-existent failure in the present Kano State government instead of facing the nemesis of corruption and political violence hanging around his neck.

“Our eight months in office have remarkably outweighed Ganduje’s eight wasted years of political caricature and maladministration by all standards,” Governor Yusuf stated.

He advised Ganduje to rather buckle up in defence of his already battered image at the court instead of further exposing his impunity in the media.

He alleged that Ganduje’s penchant for corruption had brought shame and disgrace to the good people of Kano, insisting that no amount of media campaign would hinder the process of bringing him (Ganduje) to book on the glaring cases of corruption filed against him.

The statement further regretted that Ganduje could yet shamelessly muster the courage to defend himself in the media, despite the embarrassing video clip where he was caught, red-handed, stocking his large agbada pockets with dollars.

“We wish to reaffirm the present administration’s resolve and readiness to make anyone found guilty of corruption face the full wrath of the law for their intentional wrongdoings,” the statement added.

The Kano government emphasised its commitment to thoroughly investigate and bring the dollar video scandal to a logical conclusion.

It requested the release of the forensic investigation conducted by the EFCC on the “Gandollar saga” in 2018 for public consumption.
