The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has refused to comment on viral video clips which show Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State allegedly receiving bribes in dollars from contractors.

In the videos, which were first posted by an online news medium, Daily Nigerian, Ganduje was seen receiving wads of dollar bills said to be part-payment of $5m allegedly given to him as a kickback from government contractor.

The Kano State House of Assembly had on Monday constituted a seven-man ad hoc committee to investigate and unravel the authenticity of the video.

In an earlier report also, Daily Nigerian had claimed that the video had been authenticated by experts and that security agencies had played the video for President Muhammadu Buhari to watch.

However, attempts to get the EFCC to speak on the matter since Wednesday up till Friday have proved abortive.

When contacted on the telephone, the Spokesperson for the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said he would find out if the matter was under investigation and respond appropriately.

“I will find out and get back to you,” he said.

However, subsequent calls put through to Uwujaren were not answered while a text message sent to him was not replied to as of press time on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Presidency on Friday said there was little or nothing President Muhammadu Buhari could do about the viral video.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said in an interview that the governor was not accountable to the President.
