According to the anti-corruption advocacy group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, though the alleged bribery directly concerned Kano State, the Federal Government could not afford to look away.

SERAP who sued Buhari for failure to order Ganduje’s probe, also urged the Nigerian President to use his good offices to direct either the Attorney General of the Federation or anti-graft agencies to probe the bribery allegations against Ganduje.

In a statement on Sunday by its Senior Legal Adviser, Ms Bamisope Adeyanju, SERAP said it had finally sued the President before the Federal High Court in Lagos. The group further stated that it became particularly concerned following last week ruling of a Kano State High Court, which stopped the Kano State House of Assembly from probing Ganduje.

The group through its suit marked FHC/L/CS/2055/18, are seeking  “an order for leave to apply for judicial review and an order of mandamus directing and/or compelling Mr Buhari to immediately direct the investigation of allegations of bribery against Mr Ganduje.”

“The applicant’s requests are not onerous but simply based on issues of public interest, good governance, transparency and accountability.

“It is in the interest of justice to grant this application, as the respondent has nothing to lose if the application is granted,” SERAP argued in the suit.

  1. That’s good, since he wants to pretend like he doesn’t know what to do, if this is not corruption, I wonder what is.

  2. good one, how l wish Mr President will do something about the situation concerning Kano State governor

  3. I thought he was out for justice, his pursuit on curbing corruption, so why the hesitance on this one now… Really really shady government

  4. I believe no one is immune to probing especially in an administration that profess anti-corruption. The right thing need to be done.

  5. Hmmn we are hearing about it now because election is around the corner, if not it would have remain a secret,,, we look forward to see how it ends

  6. Corruption everywhere in Nigeria….even ours leaders are the head of it…God pls save us

  7. It’s bad that the President didn’t do anything about the bribery allegation against the governor, he would have done thorough investigation to find out the truth.

  8. Am happy to hear that, we need to fight for corruption in Nigeria. No one is above the law.

  9. if the videos were correctly investigated and confirmed true by the authority, i believe he should be called to order as per not probing him and i plead for proper investigation and for the law to take its course on whosoever that falls whether he or she be number in the country

  10. Am seriously looking forward to where this ends cos I can’t just believe what they say, let’s see results.

  11. Buhari said is one of the few trustworthy Nigerians is ganduje and you want him to order his probe…. It won’t work

  12. A free and fair government should prove its commitment by actions and not merely words
    Probe Ganduje and stop taking sides
