A Kano State high court of Nigeria, precised over by Justice Ahmad Badamasi has decided that Kano State House of Assembly has no capacity to investigate the $5 million pay off bribe against Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Conveying the judgment on Thursday, the judge said gathering fix from temporary workers is a criminal offense in segment 115 and 116 of correctional code, and the House has no ability to explore criminal offenses.
He said exploring criminal offense is the capacity of organizations under official arms, for example, police, the EFCC and the ICPC.
Mr Badamasi in this manner gave a request controlling the House from meeting or welcoming any individual on the renumeration claim against Mr Ganduje as distributed by the Daily Nigerian paper.
In an interview with one of our journalists, the advice to Kano Assembly, Mahmud Waziri, said if the House choose to request the judgment he will seek after it, as he speaks to their advantage.
The chairman of the seven-member committee constituted by the Kano state House of Assembly to investigate the alleged bribery, Bappa Dan’ agundi, shortly after the ruling, told our correspondent that the House would study the court judgement and take a stand.
He said “I will not comment on behalf of the House. The House will deliberate on the matter, take a decision and make it public.”
The national coordinator of Lawyers for Sustainable Democracy in Nigeria, Muhammad Zubair, filed a suit in Kano High Court, praying the court to determine the constitutional competence of the state lawmakers to investigate the allegation of $5million bribery against Mr Ganduje
