Buhari with Nigerians in France

President Buhari, has vowed to deal with Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, if it turns out to be true that he collected $5million bribe from a contractor, as depicted in three different videos that have gone viral on the social media, in recent times.

Buhari, in apparent show of how seriously he took the matter, was said to have shouted down an indigene of Kano State, who had tried to eulogise the governor, while the President was holding a session in Paris, France, with Nigerian citizens in the country where he joined some world leaders in the ongoing conference in search of world peace.

Speaking for the first time during the interactive session with the Nigerian nationals, Buhari, was quoted as saying the videos depicting the bribery had been given to security men for vetting.

Buhari’s reaction was said to have been sparked off when a Kano State student on scholarship in France, tried to shower praises on the governor, asking the President to emulate him.

A scandalised Buhari was said to have snapped, back at the man, asking if he had seen the videos of Governor Ganduje allegedly receiving bribe in dollars, for him to make such an audacious suggestion.

“Haven’t you watched the videos of the governor stuffing dollars under his gown?” one of the participants reportedly quoted the President as asking, while demonstrating how the governor was stuffing the bundles of dollars inside his pocket.

“We gave the videos to security agencies for vetting. And we will surely take action on the matter if he is found guilty,’’ President Buhari was quoted to have said.

But the President’s response was said not to have gone well with a lawmaker and a presidential aide who reportedly pleaded with journalists to remove the portion from their reports.

An online publication, Daily Nigerian, published by Mr. Jafaar Jaafar, had uploaded the videos which showed the governor allegedly receiving $5 million bribe, dressed in white Kaftan.

The publisher explained that the aggrieved contractors, who allegedly paid between 15% and 25% of the worth of contracts to the governor, accepted to do the video recording whenever they went to pay the alleged kickback to the governor.
