”As a youth wing of Kwankwasiyya Movement, we would like to condemn the recent allegation of bribery, involving Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State in a video clip, shared to the public by an Online Media, DAILY NIGERIAN.”
According to Haruna, “the allegation of this high personality has seriously damaged Kano State, as an Islamic hub in West Africa, the substance of the video content is capable of destroying the hard earned image of the State, the fabric of our society and the nation in general.”
“We call on the EFCC AND ICPC to as a matter of urgency wade into the matter of the alleged video, through transparent investigation, if only for the sake of the mush touted anti-corruption stance of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.”
