Former governor of Kano state and senator representing Kano central, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has described the videos showing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje allegedly collecting bribe as an embarrassment to the state and its people.
Reacting to the allegation that he mismanaged President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign fund, Kwankwaso said the president was misinformed.
“The president was misinformed, he has no idea about what is going on in Kano,” he said.
“There is no project left behind by me that was completed by Ganduje. What he completed are the former Governor Shekarau’s uncompleted projects, not mine.
“I instructed my supporters not to react to that as there was no need because those informing the president lied to him.”
He said the projects being referred to were initiated and left behind by Ibrahim Shekarau, a former governor of Kano, who has now joined the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Concerning the videos of Ganduje allegedly collecting bribe from contractors, Kwankwaso said he was privy to the video before it was made public.
He said he appealed to those in possession of the videos not to release them but they rejected his plea.
Kwankwaso described the videos as an embarrassment to the state and its people.
