Nigerians call for Ganduje’s resignation over bribery videos
Nigerians have requested that Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje resign following the emergence of a fresh video where he was allegedly collecting bribe from a contractor.
The two minutes, twenty seconds footage dated January 18, 2017 and posted online yesterday, exposed the contractors, projects and voice of the purported bribe giver with the governor who was dressed in a black kaftan.
This came barely a month after two similar videos were uploaded on an online news platform where the governor was shown collecting bribes in dollars and stuffing the cash into his white babariga, but he had denied the allegation, saying the videos were photo shopped.
Consequently Nigerians are calling for Gaduje’s impeachment or resignation even as they charged the Kano State House of Assembly, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate the governor to serve as a deterrent to others.
Nigerians on twitter have bow called for the governor’s resignation.
A Twitter user, Biola Kazeem said the videos showing the governor collecting bribes on different occasions may dent the All Progressive Congress (APC) crusade against corruption.
Below are some of the comments on twitter:
The President @MBuhari cannot impeach or remove Governor Ganduje but as someone leading Africa’s anti-corruption war, he has to be quoted on the matter.The Governor’s party, APC, must be quoted too. You can’t be an anti-corruption warrior then keep quiet when a big fish is caught

Ganduje should resign
Kano house of Assembly should impeach Ganduje if he refuse to resign
APC should drop Ganduje as governorship candidate
Surmary of my opinion

How is Ganduje still the Governor of Kano state after video after video keeps coming out of him collecting bribe.
Nigeria needs collective therapy.

If Kano State House of Assembly doesn't impeach Ganduje, also if the EFCC doesn't do anything when he leaves that sit then i will question the system…. For now the matter is in the hands of Kano State House of Assembly not President Buhari.
