Kano Patriots Criticize Governor Yusuf’s Probe of Ganduje

The decision of Kano Governor, Abba Yusuf, to initiate a probe into the tenure of his predecessor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has drawn sharp criticism from the Kano Patriots, a prominent pro-democracy group. They accuse the Governor of squandering state resources and diverting attention from critical governance issues.

Yusuf recently established two judicial commissions of inquiry to investigate alleged corruption, misappropriation of public funds, political violence, and cases of missing persons during Ganduje’s administration. However, the scope of these inquiries was limited to the period between 2015 and 2023, raising concerns about the exclusion of Mallam Rabiu Kwankwaso’s tenure.

Furthermore, Yusuf’s call for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to disclose the outcome of its investigation into the purported dollar bribery video involving Ganduje has sparked further controversy.

In a statement released by their President, Barr. Aliyu Mohammed, the Kano Patriots chastised Governor Yusuf, urging him to focus on governance instead of engaging in political vendettas. They accused him of neglecting his duties in favor of petty politics, likening his actions to “chasing crickets while carrying an elephant on his head.”

The group criticized Yusuf’s leadership, labeling him as incompetent and directionless. They highlighted his failure to deliver tangible results since assuming office, emphasizing the need for him to seek guidance from experienced individuals rather than pursuing futile endeavors.

Moreover, the Kano Patriots urged Governor Yusuf to prioritize reconciliation efforts between Ganduje and Kwankwaso, as well as unite all stakeholders in the state for the collective progress and prosperity of Kano. They warned that the people would not forgive him if he continued to jeopardize the goodwill he once enjoyed through divisive politics.
