Kano State House of Assembly, on Monday,  constituted a seven-man ad hoc committee to investigate and unravel the authenticity of a purported video clip released by an online media platform, Daily Nigerian, showing the State Governor,  Dr Abddullahi Ganduje, allegedly receiving a bribe from a contractor.

The constitution of the committee followed a motion of urgent public importance moved at the plenary session by a member representing the Warawa Constituency, Alhaji Labaran Madari, which was seconded by a member representing the Kano Municipal Constituency, Baffa Babba Danagundi.

According to Madari, the house has the mandate to investigate any matter of public concern, with the aim of ensuring peace and harmony in the state.

During the plenary, the Majority Leader, Danagundi, counselled the executive arm of government to suspend its decision to take a legal action against the Daily Nigerian and its publisher, insisting that the House should have been given a time frame to investigate the alleged video clip.

Presided over by the Speaker, Alhaji Kabiru Al-Hassan Rurum, the House constituted the committee to investigate the matter and submit its reports within one month.

The committee, headed by the Majority Leader, Danagundi, has the Chief Whip, Madari; Zubairu Massu, Garba Ya’u  Gwarmai, Abdulaziz Garba Gafasa, and Abubakar Uba Galadima, as members, while Mr Mujitaba Aminu will serve as Secretary of the committee.
