New Allegations Surface Against APC Chairman Ganduje

In a significant development, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, is facing a fresh probe over the alleged diversion of N51 billion. This inquiry comes after the Kano state anti-corruption and Public Complaints Commission disclosed new allegations against the national chairman.

The chairman of the anti-corruption agency, Muhuyi Magaji, revealed that the commission is investigating a case involving the alleged diversion of funds during Ganduje’s tenure as governor of Kano from 2015 to 2023. Magaji highlighted that towards the end of Ganduje’s administration, N1 billion intended for road rehabilitation was withdrawn but allegedly redirected elsewhere.

Magaji stated, “What is happening now is a tip of the iceberg. As I am talking to you, we are investigating a case whereby N51.3 billion local government funds were directly taken from the government coffers and sent to other individuals, and we traced it to people.”

The commission remains committed to combating corruption, emphasizing its apolitical stance despite Magaji’s appointment by Ganduje himself. The former governor is expected to receive a formal invitation regarding the investigation.

This news comes on the heels of Ganduje’s suspension from his APC ward over corruption allegations, although the APC in Kano later nullified the suspension. The Kano High Court is set to arraign Ganduje on charges related to allegations of bribery, diversion, and misappropriation of funds.

The unfolding situation raises questions about governance and accountability, with many awaiting further developments in this high-profile case.
