The issue of bribe-taking videos of the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, resurfaced again at the maiden meeting of APC Presidential Campaign Council, with President Muhammadu Buhari contemplating visiting the state for campaign.
The governor has appeared in a series of videos published by a confirmed source allegedly receiving bribe from a contractor.
A confirmed source it was reliably gathered that the president may not visit Kano unless when “necessary” in view of the bribe-taking scandal the governor is enmeshed in.
The agenda for the meeting was to consider and approve the structure and operational modalities of the Presidential Campaign Council.
A member of the council, Bashir Lado, had earlier raised issues about the campaign timetable, suggesting that Kano and Lagos should come last in view of their population and electoral significance.
Responding to Mr Lado’s question, Mr Buhari asked rhetorically “What if Kano people asked me why was their governor receiving bribe and smiling?”
“I really don’t have answers to that. I can’t go to Kano for campaign unless when necessary,” Mr Buhari said to the applause and praise of the participants of the closed-door meeting.
