A Non Governmental Group, Kano Concerned for Prudent Leadership has petitioned the State Public Complaint and Anti-corruption Commission (PCACC) to investigate the state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, over allegations of collecting kickbacks as seen in some video clips that have gone viral.

A letter signed by one Mukhtar Sani Mandawari purportedly on behalf of the chairman of the group, said it implores PCACC’S chairman to invoke his “powers under the relevant provisions of the law and cause thorough investigation into the matter.”

The body said it is aware that the governor may not be amenable for prosecution because he enjoys constitutional immunity but insisted that investigations into the allegations could be carried out as was the case with former governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose who the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigated while in office as governor.

Meanwhile, the PCACC’s chairman said the commission received the letter and is processing the same, adding that necessary actions would be taken. He reassured that his office does its work according to its enabling laws, without fear or favour, adding that it would not be the first time a government official would be investigated by it
