Ganduje Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty In A Law Court, Says Buhari by DAVECENA(m): 8:54pm On Jan 31, 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari has responded to claims that he is shielding Abdullahi Ganduje, Governor of Kano State, from prosecution.

Ganduje was caught on camera pocketing wads of dollars, which appeared to be kickbacks from a contractor.

Although the Governor has claimed the videos were doctored, Jafar Jafar, publisher of Daily Nigerian, who shared the videos in public domain, insisted the videos were real.

Jafar was invited to face an investigative panel set up by the Kano State House of Assembly, but no major action has been taken against the Governor on the matter.

Similarly, when he appeared on ‘The Candidates’, a presidential town hall programme for politicians broadcast on live television, Buhari expressed doubt about the authenticity of the videos but stated that the law would take its course.

However, on Thursday, the presidential campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) berthed in Kano and Buhari was welcomed to the state by Ganduje, as well as thousands of party faithful. Buhari also endorsed Ganduje for reelection as governor of the state.

Responding to the reports that the corruption allegation levelled against Ganduje had watered down the President’s claim that he is fighting corruption impartially, a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), issued on Thursday, restated Buhari’s commitment to the fight against corruption.

The statement read: “President Muhammadu Buhari has dismissed claims that his association with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano has diminished his commitment to the war against corruption.

“The Presidency in a statement Thursday said that there is a difference between perception and reality. According to the statement, which followed comments after the proclamation by President Buhari of Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, at a rally in Kano, the presidency cited a number of high-profile prosecution of senior government officials that a former Secretary to the Government and a former state governor who is a party member and now serving term in jail as indications of will and determination to wage the anti-corruption war without fear or favour.

“It also added that the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof. Usman Yusuf, is currently on administrative leave as part of President Buhari's commitment to transparency and accountability.

“The statement explained that despite some of the suspects being close to the President, he had not shielded them from investigation, administrative suspensions and prosecution.

“The Presidency added that it is sheer mischief to suggest that President Buhari is shielding anybody because of their closeness to him, explaining that no official under this administration would go unpunished once they break the law.”

On the allegations of corruption against the Governor, the statement added: “On the specific issue of Governor Ganduje of Kano State, the statement noted that Dr. Ganduje, as a sitting Governor, enjoys immunity from prosecution in his own right. Furthermore, under Nigerian laws, a suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

“In the circumstances, the matter is in court and the President has no power to dictate to the court or the Kano State House of Assembly, which is already investigating the matter, about what to do with the allegations against Ganduje.

“The Presidency added that it is unfair to ignore the larger picture of the President's major successes in the war against corruption, including blocking leakages of corruption, which in turn, boosted government revenues.

“The statement challenged President Buhari's critics to prove that those facing corruption allegations are innocent, adding that the President's zero tolerance for corruption has boosted and remarkably improved
Nigeria's image in the eyes of world leaders.”

It's only APC members whom are innocent until proven guilty. Yet this same blood hungry man jails, suspends and condemns those whom haven't been proven guilty.

Nigeria’s greatest problem remains poverty.

The more these fools keep putting more people in poverty, the more control they have.

And now we have 20m+ youths unemployed.

Atiku/Obi. I can’t wait.

Ganduje needs law court to declare him guilty but Dasuki needs a Buhari to declare him guilty.

Chai!!
Furthermore, under Nigerian laws, a suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
“The statement challenged President Buhari's critics to prove that those facing corruption allegations are innocent

These two sentences altogether in one piece?? Now juxtapose with the statement released to justify Onnoghen's illegal suspension and this government's logic falls flat. How long shall we allow politicians take us for a ride? Buhari's only arguable strong point is this so-called corruption fight and he just flunked it badly. It would have been better if he had said nothing.
This gives credence to the biblical saying that a fool is considered wise while his mouth his shut. But once he opens his mouth, his folly is clear for all to see.
If Buhari had not won the 2015 elections, his worshippers would have continued to regale us of his prowess and ability to right the nations ills. But now his unclothedness is bare for all to see.
Truly, power corrupts and quest for absolute power corrupts absolutely!!

And same jihadist is always eager to haunt opposition and dissents whom he / his handlers considers guilty without court prosecution.

Any supporter of buhari needs to have his or her brain check cos no sane individual will be willing to reinforce failure and fraud.

Buhari's personality is the biggest fraud in our political history.

Re: Ganduje Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty In A Law Court, Says Buhari by dockokwus: 9:38pm On Jan 31, 2019
Since Buhari filed his assets declaration form without making it public was when I suspected the man's so called integrity was a scam.
When public outcry now made him partly make it public,by declaring he had "at least 10million Naira in his account",without any other detail and without declaring that of his wife,something YarAdua did effortlessly,was when I confirmed that the man was neck deep in corruption.
Integrity and incorruptible should never be used not just in the same sentence,but in the same entire write-up or speech,with Buhari.

The two you mentioned never released statements to support their associates with credibility issues like buhari did. Most of us know that those your allegations remain in the realm of allegations. The story of the $16bn has been cleared by fashola himself, as well as the House of Reps. If you guys continue to mouth such allegations as defense then you lots are simply unserious. Buhari was accused of aiding the smuggling of 53 suitcases containing dollar notes as military head. As PTF chairman, he was accused of mismanaging N2.8bn. How do you react to all these?

Meaningless ignorant and unintelligent rubbish as usual.

Tell me 2 APC members and former governors were not sent to jail under PMB and I'll pay you attention, till you do, go away with your ipob rubbish.



In 1977, the military head of state, Lt. Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo, set up a crude oil sales tribunal to investigate the operations of the Nigerian National Oil Company (NNOC, which metamorphosed into NNPC same year).

The tribunal found out that in three years, NNOC had failed to collect its equity share of oil produced by Shell, Mobil and Gulf.

As a joint venture partner, NNOC was entitled to 182.95 million barrels of oil production. But NNOC did not find buyers for its own share, thereby losing a potential income of $2.8 billion.

But it was instead reported by the media that $2.8 billion was missing

I want PDP and its apologists to tell what exactly do they want Buhari to do on Ganduje.

Charge him to court?
Remove him from his seat?
Or what? Saraki their Mentor was always welcome by Buhari despite having case in court.
Gov. Udom was caught transferring 1.2billion naira from state account to Usoro yet his not charged to court.
Despite all insults on Buhari from Obj yet he welcome him.

By the way, the House of Reps also exonerated OBJ of your $16bbn claim
