It was reported earlier today that the video of Kano State Governor Umar Gandujeallegedly receiving bribe, was shared by Daily Nigerian.
Nigerians are already reacting to the viral video, and here are some tweets below;
I have been reliably informed that the man was not collecting bribe. The dollars hexwas caught on cameras collecting was bride price from his in laws after the marriage of his daughter earlier this year. Stop being mischievous!
We now know why Kano Governor, @GovUmarGanduje, likes very big Agbada and baban riga. It is for ‘banking’ purposes. Farouk Lawan used cap banking, while Ganduje prefers agbada banking. No wonder they fought President Jonathan for introducing the cashless policy
Ganduje will say the video was doctored, that he was not receiving a bribe, he would campaign for Buhari, finish his term as governor, go to the Senate & the people of Kano will move on. It is just how we roll here.
The #Ganduje video doesn’t prove a bribe was received, merely that he collected Dollars.
$ received could have been:
Proceeds from a successful & legitimate business transaction
Repayment of a loan
A Naira to Dollar FX Conversion
Till audio is provided, we can only speculate.
Either way, the right thing to do with this #Ganduje case is for the Kano House of Assembly, the @officialEFCC and the @PoliceNGto commence separate investigations to ensure the money exchanged was for legitimate purposes.
That Ganduje video is very sad. How can Nigeria progress like this? Some people will still try to defend this.
If watching Ganduje pocket your children’s future in form of $5m, isn’t enough reason for you to want to partake in politics or leave Nigeria, nothing will be !
Who was responsible for the soundtrack in that Ganduje video? Made the governor look like ciroki collecting money to marry off his daughter to the rich man she doesn’t like
This Gov Ganduje’s bribe issue is a real test on President @Mbuhari’s fight against corruption. Is it a real one or the administration have been lying all along,we watch on
EFCC should track down and arrest the tailor who made Ganduje’s Babbar Riga…he made it on purpose
let’s us be real. Ganduje no any silver bullet will stop him from been impeach or come back for his second term.
