A statement by his spokesman Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye said the governor received news of the arrest with utter disappointment and surprise.
He said the officials were arrested in connection with the budget amendment of 2013 of the state government which he has already signed into law. The governor observed that the speaker and his colleagues were only exercising their constitutional responsibility of ensuring that budgets are properly articulated to ensure probity and accountability in public expenditure so that in the end, the citizens can enjoy dividends of democracy.
“It is crystal clear that the officials were arrested by the EFCC on orders from the above because of the legislators’ defection to the APC in support of Governor Kwankwaso.
“This action is obviously to intimidate and cow them into submission for choosing to move to the progressive fold. The action is not only despicable and absurd but also capable of igniting crisis in the polity, thereby breaching the relative peace that is being enjoyed in Kano State”, the statement said.  He said it was regrettable that the EFCC is allowing itself to become a tool of witch-hunt.
