Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso representing Kano State has distanced himself from the corruption video showing State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje allegedly collecting 5million dollars as bribe.
Two separate videos had emerged online of the Governor allegedly collecting bribe from contractors in the state.
Following the emergence of the videos, the Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, had claimed that Jafar Jafar, Publisher of Daily Nigerian, was working with Kwankwanso.
Kwankwanso, while responding to the claim of the Commissioner for Information, Mallam Muhammad Garba, that Jafar Jafar, Publisher of Daily Nigerian, has been working for the opposition and that he is an antagonist of All Progressive Congress, APC, stated that there was nothing between the publisher and him.
However, Kwankwaso insisted that there was nothing between the publisher and him.
Kwankwaso’s stance was contained in a statement by his spokesperson, Hajiya Binta Spikin.
The terse statement reads, “Everyone knows that Jafar Jafar is an independent journalist and his medium, Daily Nigerian, is also independent.
“There is no deal whatsoever between Jafar and Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso. So if they are suspecting anything, it is left for them to prove it.”
