The Kano State House of Assembly has constituted a seven-man committee to investigate the authenticity of the video recording of alleged bribing taking by Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje. The video of Ganduje allegedly receiving bribe from a contractor was published by an online Newspaper.
The committee was constituted following a motion of urgent public importance filed by a member Alhaji Labaran Madari who pointed out that the House has the mandate to investigate any matter in order to ensure peace and harmony in the state.
Speaking during the plenary, the Majority Leader, Alhaji Baffa Babba Danagundi advised the executive arm of government to halt the filing of a case before a court of law on the alleged video clip by the online medium. According to him, the state Assembly has the constitutional mandate to investigate issues like this.
Speaking while ruling on the deliberation, the speaker Kabiru Rurum urge the committee to investigate the matter and submit its reports within one month.
