The Kano Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) has sent an invitation to former governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, requesting his presence within seven days to address the controversial viral video involving the exchange of dollars. In addition, the state government has withdrawn the lawsuit previously filed by Ganduje during his tenure, which challenged the investigation into the allegations. The chairman of the commission, Muhyi Rimingado, confirmed that an invitation letter had been issued to Ganduje, granting him the opportunity to answer questions regarding the corruption allegations against him. Rimingado emphasized that the commission possesses the authority to investigate corruption cases involving individuals from all walks of life. He assured that the commission would adhere to due process during the investigation and provide ample opportunity for Ganduje to defend himself. Rimingado also stated that forensic experts had verified the authenticity of the video, affirming that it had not been manipulated. The PCACC aims to recover stolen public funds amounting to N100 billion and urged the public to play an active role in combating corruption. Meanwhile, a former commissioner who served under Governor Ganduje has already been arrested and is being interrogated for an alleged fraud of N1 billion. On a separate note, the Kano State government has withdrawn the suit filed against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), seeking to prevent further investigation and interrogation of the former governor. The notice of discontinuance was filed by the Solicitor General of the Kano State Ministry for Justice, citing procedural rules. The new governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf, instructed the Attorney General to discontinue the case initiated by the previous administration.
