The Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) has invitated former governor Abdullahi Ganduje to appéar before it over alleged dollar bribe videos.
The Chairman of the commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, confirmed this to newsmen in Kano on Thursday.
He said that the commission is expecting Ganduje to appear before it next week to have the opportunity to clear his name in the ongoing investigation.
“I have signed a letter to invite him for questioning at the commission next week because this is what the law says and we will provide ample opportunity for him to defend himself”
He explained that since the video came out in 2018, the commission had indicated its intention to investigate and that since the governor then enjoyed immunity, there was a limit to what the law allowed the commission to do in that regard.
“This is why on my return as the chairman few weeks ago and the fact that the former governor no longer enjoys immunity, we decided to reopen the investigation and give the former governor the opportunity to clear himself or otherwise; moreso as the videos have continued to cause the state and citizens of the state ridicule across the globe,”
He however called on all citizens of the state that have useful information that would further help the investigation to come forward, promising that such information will be treated confidentially
