NANS says President Buhari should urgently order an investigation into allegations of bribery against Kano governor Ganduje
The students’ body noted that it had waited a long time for the president’s action on the matter but had seen nothing done
NANS spokesperson Amoo said President Buhari should follow in the footsteps of past leaders like ex-president Obasanjo who dealt with beloved loyalists found to be corrupt
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to launch an investigate into the corruption allegation leveled against Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
News Agency of Nigeria reports that NANS spokesperson Adeyemi Amoo, said on Wednesday, January 2 in Abuja it was time for President Buhari to get rid of all politically corrupt office holders in the country and expose their dirty dealings capable of destroying his administration.
Amoo said: “The national leadership of NANS have been monitoring the fight against corruption by President Buhari.
“NANS also watched series of video clips on internet, which are real time and undisputed facts establishing the high level of corruption excesses of the governor of Kano State, Abdulahi Ganduje.
“No doubt, the videos have proven beyond any excuse nor doubts of acceptance of the allegations.
“NANS has waited patiently enough for President Buhari to take up this highly disgracing and country’s integrity attacking acts from the governor.”
Amoo appealed to the president follow in footsteps of his predecessors who punished their beloved loyalists believed to have been corrupt.
This, he said, would enhance President Buhari’s fight against corruption.
“NANS recalls during the days of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, a serving Governor of Bayelsa State, Depriye Alamieseya, was accused of corruption, money laundering, he was impeached and sent to jail.
“A strong PDP chieftain, Bode George was alleged of corruption, found guilty and sent to jail. Tafa Balogun, an Inspector General of Police was also sent to jail.
“As such, NANS implores President Muhammadu Buhari to emulate his predecessors in putting an end to corruption,’’ he said.
Amoo, however, called on President Buhari to as a matter of national and international interest subject Ganduje to necessary investigations on the allegations.
