Recall that the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) has summoned the immediate past governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje for interrogation over a controversial dollar video.

The Chairman of the Commission, Muhyi Magaji stated this on Channels Television’s Lunchtime Politics on Thursday.

“I just signed an invitation letter for him (Ganduje) to appear next week because this is what the law says,” he said.

According to the party, the recent revisiting of the case, which is already before a court of law, appears to be politically motivated and aimed at tarnishing the image of the former governor.

In a statement jointly signed by Abdullahi Abbas, the chairman of the party, and Zakari Sarina, the secretary, the APC revealed that the current campaign of calumny is intended to create a rift between President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Ganduje, who is known as one of the president’s strongest allies in the north.

According to APC, “the matter is before a court of law, and there is a sinister ploy to dent the image of the former governor.”

It further explained that a similar scenario was played to scuttle the former governor’s chance of securing the ticket for the party’s gubernatorial election in 2019.

The APC affirmed that Ganduje’s significant contributions to the Tinubu political project, particularly during the primary election, are widely recognised, and his relationship with the president remains cordial.
