Nigerians Wait On EFCC Over Ganduje-Gate
The agency, known for its active response in the past and present administration seems to be quiet on the case of Kano State Governor.
Naija News recalls that with over a hundred days after the revelation of how the State Governor, Mr Ganduje appeared in a series of videos, receiving money in dollars alleged to be bribe amounting to about $5million.
The money was given by persons believed to be contractors to the state government and was made public in a sting report by online-based Daily Nigerian news platform.
The governor has debunked the video as “cloned” and threatened a sweeping lawsuit against its publisher.

Is The Anti-Graft sleeping?
Meanwhile, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has also failed to comment on whether the agency will ever commence an investigation into the bribery allegations levelled against the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje.
Although, Constitutionally, Mr Ganduje cannot be prosecuted because he enjoys immunity while in office. But the agency is not barred from investigating him.
This it did, in the case of Ayodele Fayose, ex-governor of Ekiti State, who could not be prosecuted for alleged graft while in office but was actively investigated by the EFCC. Mr Fayose was immediately detained when he left office a few weeks ago.
