My Association With Ganduje Does Not Hinder My War Against Corruption – Buhafri

President Buhari has slammed claims that he is no longer invested in fighting corruption due to his association with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano. Via a statement released by his media aide, Garba Shehu, President Buhari said that there is a difference between perception and reality. The statement saw President Buhari citing a number of high profile prosecution of senior government officials as his way of reassuring Nigerians of his continuous effort to wage the anti-corruption war without fear or favour. Furthermore, the statement went on to explain that despite some of the suspects being close to the President, doesn’t stop them from being investigated. On Governor Ganduje of Kano State, the statement made it known that Dr. Ganduje, as a sitting Governor, enjoys immunity from prosecution in his own right. Furthermore, a suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law according to Nigerian laws. Photo credit: Getty
