A Senator from Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso has distanced himself from the videos indicting the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje of allegedly collecting 5million dollars as bribe.
Former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, has spoken out on the viral video clips showing his successor, Governor Umar Ganduje, reportedly taking bribes and stuffing bundles of dollar bills in his babariga attire, and dissociated himself from the scandal.
The National Assembly lawmaker, Kwankwaso was reacting while responding to the claim of the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, that Jaafar Jaafar, Publisher of Daily Nigerian who shared the video, has been working for the opposition.
Kwankwanso stated that there was nothing between him and the publisher, and debunked claims that he or Jafar is an antagonist of All Progressive Congress (APC).
Kwankwanso who spoke through his spokesperson, Hajiya Binta Spikin, said: “Everyone knows that Jaafar Jaafar is an independent journalist and his medium, Daily Nigerian, is also independent.
“There is no deal whatsoever between Jafar and Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso. So if they are suspecting anything, it is left for them to prove it,” she stated.
