This Video Of The Kano Governor Pocketing Dollars Left Us With So Many Questions

October 15, 2018
Nigerian politicians are corrupt. This statement isn’t news to any Nigerian. But yesterday two video of the governor of Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje surfaced. In the videos, he’s seen collecting bundles of money one at a time from someone we can’t see. Even with the levels of corruption we experience, the videos still managed to surprise us and we have so many questions.

What was the money for?

Was Ganduje helping them change it to naira? Was he collecting it for safe keeping?

Why hasn’t anyone in leadership said anything about it?

It’s not as if we expect them to say anything sensible, but why the silence?

Why was he collecting the bundles one by one? Is that how it’s done now? What happened to ghana bag?

Was he counting the money to see if it’s complete?

Why did he put some bundles in his agabada and put some on the floor? Is that why so many of our politicians like to wear agabada?

Is agabda banking the new one? What happened to cap banking?

According to Daily Nigeria, these two videos are the first of 15 which show the governor collecting a bribe. So what’s in the remaining 13?

Watch out for all new episodes of ‘How to get away with dollars’.

For the people saying the video is fake, is it not Governor Ganduje who’s in the video?

Abi it’s someone else we are seeing?

According to his Special Adviser for media, the governor was framed but the video is fake. Which one is it? Is the video fake? Or was he framed?

The special adviser also goes on about how the people trying to set his poor governor up couldn’t fake his voice. But isn’t this his voice we hear in the second video?

But the most important question of all, is why is he still in office?

This won’t be the first time we’ll see politicians get away with such blatant acts of corruption.  But we are still hoping something is done about this.
