Governor Ganduje

The Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje according to Ameen Yassar, director–general, Media and Publicity of the Government House donated a sum of N10m to EFCC and ICPC.

Ameen said the donation was made in honor of President Buhari’s war against corruption.

Governor Ganduje received the EFCC, the ICPC and the AFN during an event in honour of Buhari’s effort against corruption. He said that his administration has fostered the availiabilty of the agencies. Ganduje said exactly,

“Before now, people find it difficult to access the services of the agency, but we established offices across the 44 local government areas so that the services can be available to the common man.

“We also facilitated the recruitment of additional personnel and subjected them to training by professional agencies like EFCC and ICPC so that they can deliver. We also ensured cooperation with these agencies and that attracted international organisations to support us in reinforcing our anti-corruption system.”

ICPC stands for Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC). EFCC is an acronym for Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. While AFN stands for Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN).

EFCC and ICPC, anti-graft agencies, organized a program in honor of Buhari, who under his regime public funds were stolen in the open. Governor Ganduje who hosted the anti-graft agencies was seen in a video collecting bribe but his case shoved under the carpet by EFCC.

EFCC literally went to court to defend why they cannot prosecute Governor Ganduje despite solid video proof. Ganduje denied the bribery claims against him saying it was the work of his opponents. In addition, president Buhari honored Ganduje as the best Governor of the year.

Sequel to the N10m donation by Ganduje, EFCC has debunked claims that it received the sum from the Ganduje. It also confirmed that it held the occasion in collaboration of the ICPC and AFN.

They made the announcement on Facebook and it reads below.

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a trending story in the social media concerning a purported statement credited to the media aide of the Kano State governor to the effect that the Commission got a N10 Million donation from the state government.

The story is not falsehood, but a deliberate attempt to malign the efforts of the Commission in the fight against corruption.

For the records, it is a tradition that the EFCC does not receive donations from state governors/government or any individual at that.

The EFCC, as a reputable anti-graft agency is sponsored by federal government through budgetary allocation and in some cases, foreign organisations in terms of capacity building.

It is true that the Commission, in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crimes, ICPC and the Athletic Federation of Nigeria, AFN and other stakeholders is organizing the first National Anti-Corruption Marathon.

Mr. Jacob Onu, the leader of the National Anti-Corruption Marathon had in the course of his visit to the Commission a fortnight ago told the Acting Chairman and his management about the marathon which he said is being planned in tandem with the International Anti-Corruption Day which usually comes up on December 9 every year.

He said it was aimed at raising national consciousness on the scourge and danger of corruption to the country and the need for all and sundry to join hands to eradicate it.

It is therefore very shocking to read of a purported donation of N10 million to the Commission.
The story is not only unfounded but very mischievous.

For the avoidance of doubt, no State governor or some other individual or group has donated any amount of money to the EFCC to carry out the Anti-corruption Marathon project or any other project for that matter”.

The above statement either means that the Ganduje lied about the donation or the EFCC is denying the donation in order to save its already tarnished name.
