The Kano State Government has filed an eight-count charge against the immediate past governor of the state, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, for allegedly collecting $200,000 from a contractor, among other infractions, it emerged yesterday.

Daily Trust made efforts to speak with the Attorney-General of the state, Haruna Dederi, last night but he did not respond to his call or reply to a text message sent to him.

There was also no response from those close to Ganduje, who is now the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a charge sheet seen by The Cable and filed before the Kano High Court, the NNPP-led state government said the offence contravened Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Commission Commission Law 2008. 

The defendants in the case are Ganduje, Hafsat Umar, Abubakar Bawuro, Umar Abdullahi Umar, Jibrilla Muhammad, Lamash Properties Limited, Safari Textiles Limited, and Lesaga General Enterprises.

The state government also accused Ganduje of collecting $210,000 kickback from “people and entities seeking or holding the execution of Kano State Government contract and or project for the remodelling of Kantin Kwari textile market as a bribe through one of the contractors (agent)”.

Daily Trust reports that Ganduje and those close to him had severally denied the allegation, saying the video was doctored to bring the former governor to disrepute.
