The contractor that recorded the videos showing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje receiving bribes has said he is willing to appear before the Kano State House of Assembly.
According to The Cable, the contractor, in a letter sent to the chairman of the investigative panel, through his lawyer, the contractor referred to as a ‘whistleblower’ said his allegations against Ganduje were “strictly personal” and that he would appreciate if the governor also appeared at the panel.
The contractor said his appearance before the panel would be based on the fulfillment of certain conditions listed in the letter.
One of the conditions, according to the contractor, is that the video clips would be submitted to two experts for forensic analysis.
He said one of the experts must be a serving officer of the Department of State Services and the other an expatriate, while their bills would be paid by the state.
The letter read: “That a Certified True Copy of the report(s) prepared by the experts shall be made available to our client prior to his appearance.
“That our client has undertaken to surrender to the experts the device used in capturing all the events in the video clips submitted and others yet to be submitted for discreet analysis and scrutiny.
“That all the proposed questions to be asked by the panel in the anticipated session shall not be more than 10 and shall be forwarded to our client in advance.
“That the sitting be restricted to limited persons and that our client should be allowed to wear a mask, bear a fictitious name and receive protection from authorities for himself, family and business.”
The contractor also demanded that the panel must also have in attendance the governor, the publisher of Daily Nigerian, Jaafar Jaafar, and one Aminu Daurawa.
