Former governor of Kano state Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has distanced himself from the videos indicting the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, allegedly collected five million dollars as a bribe.
Following the emergence of the videos, the Commissioner for Information, Mallam Muhammad Garba, had claimed that Jafar Jafar, Publisher of Daily Nigerian, was working with Kwankwanso.
However, the senator, representing Kano Central Senatorial District, insisted that there was nothing between the publisher and him.
Speaking through his media aide Hajiya Binta Spikin, the former governor said: “Everyone knows that Jafar Jafar is an independent journalist and his medium, Daily Nigerian, is also an independent news platform.
“There is no deal whatsoever between Jafar and Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso. So if they are suspecting anything, it is left for them to prove it.”
