The Kwankwasiyya Movement in Kano has reacted to the investigation of its leader and immediate past governor of the state, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, by the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje over an alleged multi-billion naira 5 kilometre road projects during his tenure.
Ganduje, had while inaugurating 12 campaign committees for his second term bid, said that his government is probing the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso over multi-billion naira 5 kilometre road projects.
Reacting, a prominent member of the group and commissioner when Kwankwaso was governor, Comrade Aminu Abdulsalam, described the allegation as nothing “but a new amusing topic to divert people’s attention.”
However, Abdulsalam, who is the running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate, Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf, confirmed to newsmen yesterday in Kano that the contract was conceived and awarded under Kwankwaso’s regime.
He pointed out that it was awarded from Ganduje’s office when he was the deputy governor and commissioner for local government.
He said, “Let him tell the public how the contract was awarded, what happened to it and who the contractors are. The 5km road project was not the case investigated by the EFCC and is not Ganduje that took the case to EFCC. The EFCC has finished that case”.
