Kano Anti-Graft Commission Pursues Charges Against Ganduje

The Kano State Anti-Corruption and Public Complaints Commission has initiated fresh charges against former governor Abdullahi Ganduje, who currently serves as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to Muhuyi Magaji, the chair of the anti-graft agency, investigations reveal that during Ganduje’s tenure, significant funds amounting to N51 billion were allegedly diverted from government coffers for unauthorized purposes.

Magaji disclosed these details during an appearance on the Sunrise Daily program, emphasizing the magnitude of the alleged corruption. Among the instances cited, a billion naira intended for road rehabilitation was diverted to Bureau de Change operators instead.

The commission’s actions underscore its commitment to combating corruption, regardless of political affiliations. Magaji, appointed by Ganduje himself in 2015, reaffirmed the agency’s dedication to upholding justice and accountability.

Meanwhile, Ganduje faces mounting pressure, with a court arraignment scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, 2024. The charges against him include bribery allegations involving substantial sums of money. Despite attempts to suspend him from the APC over these allegations, party executives in Kano nullified the suspension, signaling a complex political landscape surrounding the issue.
