Coalition raises alarm over ‘Kano government sponsored dialogue’ to ridicule Ganduje

A Coalition of Northern Civil Society Group on the platform of Good Governance and Advocacy Group (GGAG) has warned against premeditated attempt allegedly by the government of Kano state to ridicule the immediate past governor of the state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The coalition revealed that there is a sinister move by the Kano state government using the apparatus of the state anti-corruption commission to bring the name of the former governor Ganduje to disrepute through a politically motivated dialogue it is organising on Wednesday.

In a statement released Wednesday in Kano by the Secretary of the Coalition, Muhammed Lawan Shuaibu, the coalition observed that the attempt was aimed at denting the image of the former Chief Executive who enjoys a good relationship with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to prevent him from securing a deserving political appointment.

It said the dialogue, which is being put in place by the Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints ànd Anti Corruption Commission (PCACC), Barrister Muhuyi Magaji Rimingado, is not open to other CSOs but hand picked participants from friends and associates of the commission’s Chairman. 

The coalition described the action of Muhuyi and the state owned commission “as purely vindictive, malicious, malevolent and politically motivated.”

The statement  stated that “Muhuyi must understand that he can’t preempt what is already in the courts. He must also be reminded, he risk the contempt of court.

“The entire shenanigans Muhuyi is organizing with some of the CSOs in Kano is politically motivated, as some members of these already compromised CSOs are also known and card carrying members of the NNPP in Kano.”

The release added that the renewed attacks by both Muhuyi and the commission are a well crafted ploy to rubbish Dr. Ganduje and pitch him against President Tinubu  in order to undermine his chances of getting any position in his administration.

While calling on the public to ignore the activities of the Commission, the coalition said: “it is obvious, Muhuyi and his band of destructive agents are unhappy on the cordial relationship between the duo.”
