Ganduje's bribery allegation

Dan specifically refuted the viral video that allegedly showed the former governor pocketing a bribe as doctored and unreal.

It said the video clip lacks "authenticity and context" and hence concluded that the recording is not admissible.

He said:

“The allegations against Dr. Ganduje are mostly anchored on a piece of supposed video evidence. This widely circulated video allegedly showing Dr. Ganduje receiving bribes lacks authenticity and context. Without proper forensic analysis and verification, relying solely on this video undermines the pursuit of justice. We took note that the video evidence has been discredited prior."

The group urges the public to disregard the probe by the Kano government, stating that Ganduje did not in any way act against established laws while in office.

He concluded:

“The Coalition for Truth and Justice wishes to state in unequivocal terms that Dr Umar Ganduje did not commit any infraction while in office as they would want the unsuspecting members of the general public to believe. The facts before us indicate a regime of transparency and accountability.

Court told to sack Ganduje as APC chairman had earlier reported that the crisis rocking the APC in Kano state was far from over, as a party chieftain dragged Abdullahi Ganduje to court.

Mohammed Saidu-Etsu wants Ganduje to vacate his seat as chairman of the APC and had also asked the court to declare the former Kano governor's appointment illegal.

This is coming weeks after Ganduje's ward executives suspended him over his recent court battles (bribery allegations).
