Buhari finally reacts to Ganduje's bribery videos, says he doesn't know the technology used (WATCH VIDEO)

President Muhammadu Buhari  has expressed doubts about the videos showing Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State allegedly receiving kickbacks from a contractor.

Buhari made his doubts known during a live presidential town hall meeting tagged ‘The Candidates’ at the Ladi Kwali Conference Centre, Sheraton Hotel, Abuja, on Wednesday.

While answering a question on why he seemed not to mind the corruption allegation against Ganduje, Buhari said: “Can Ganduje fail to trust somebody to give the money to him?

“That clip, somebody brought it to me of how the Kano Governor was receiving dollars and smiling and putting it in his pocket. I don’t know the extent of technology used and I can’t answer now because the state assembly has gone to court I decided not to talk about it, and the state assembly constitutionally could have dealt with that but then I heard the matter was taken to court,” Buhari said.

The moderator asked if the President believes the video is fake or real but Vice President Osinbajo tried to intervene. At this point, the moderator cuts him short, saying: “he can talk for himself.”

Buhari’s reply was: “As I told you, I’ve seen the clip; I don’t know how much technology was used but can Ganduje fail to get somebody to get the money to him [and] he has to take it directly himself, smiling?

“I honestly am completely overwhelmed and the system has given me some relief; it’s in the court, it is in the state assembly so let them as much as possible deal with it. This thing has received a lot of publicity and I hope by the time I go on my campaign for re-election there will be some answers from the court and the state assembly in Kano state about the video.”
