Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf responded to his predecessor, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje, on Sunday, challenging claims of failure in the current administration and highlighting what he described as Ganduje’s misrule during his eight-year tenure.

Governor Yusuf, through his spokesperson Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, expressed regret that Ganduje focused on nonexistent failures in the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) government instead of addressing the issues surrounding his own governance.


He criticized Ganduje’s tenure for alleged corruption, diversion of public funds, and the sale of government properties, asserting that his eight months in office had already surpassed Ganduje’s two unproductive terms.

Governor Yusuf urged Ganduje to focus on defending himself in court rather than further engaging in media skirmishes.

He referenced the infamous video allegedly showing Ganduje pocketing dollars, purportedly received as kickbacks from a contractor, and other corruption scandals associated with his administration.

The statement underscored the need for accountability and transparency, calling for the release of the EFCC report on the alleged Dollar saga and other corrupt practices during Ganduje’s tenure.

“We wish to reaffirm the present administration’s resolve and readiness to make Ganduje and his co-travellers face the full wrath of the law for thier intentional wrong doings,” the statement added.

Governor Yusuf, however, maintained that his administration is multifacetedly inclined, prioritizing focus and attention on socio-economic and physical infrastructure developments for the overall well-being of Kano and the good people of Kano State.

“Governor Yusuf believes that for anyone to assume that efforts to unravel the issue of corruption charges against Ganduje and members of his immediate family are an attempt to cover up, clearly means, such category of people are either under false illusion or being economical with the truth.

“For whatever option, the Kano State government would advise the acting national chairman of APC to show cause why his name, that of his family, and the entire people of Kano should permanently erase from the global embarrassment that the dollar video has generated.

“The administration of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf emphasized that it would leave no stone unturned to pursuing the dollar video scandal to logical conclusion. He therefore requested the release of the forensic investigation conducted by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFFC, on the ‘Gandollar saga’, in 2018, for public consumption”, he stated.

On the allegations of poor governance in Kano despite the increase in federal allocation, Governor Yusuf stated that his administration “is still struggling to recover from state of bankruptcy Ganduje plunged the state in the last eight years.”

“We wish to warn Ganduje to stop dragging the name of President Bola Tinubu into his corruption saga, as we believe that our able and well respected President does not interfere into cases before the courts of competent jurisdiction, as we witnessed during our trying times at the Supreme Court when he allowed justice to prevail for the opposition parties,” the statement added.
