Three years after a video went showing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje allegedly receiving dollars as a bribe went viral, the Kano State governor has broken his silence, saying the said video was fake.
He added that they are investigating those behind the video, maintaining that those behind it will be punished.
Speaking in a BBC Hausa programme, ‘A Fada A Cika’, on Friday, Ganduje said the videos are fake and underground investigation is ongoing on the video.
“We will deal with those behind the fake video aimed at tarnishing my image. No doubt the video is fake and we are on an underground plan and investigation which we will not reveal.
“But I assure you that the video is fake and those behind it will be put to shame,” he said.
According to him, those behind the video wanted to block his re-election bid but they did not succeed.
“It is a lie and nothing of that nature ever happened. It was just a setup plan to stop me from contesting the election and I have contested, they wanted to stop me from winning the election and I have won.
“But that is not the big issue, the big one is we will deal with them.
“Even your picture can be tempered with to show you doing something with your hand or head and you know it’s possible. People always tend to believe the falsehood,” the governor said.
