APC,s Legacy: Infamous Video of Bribery Endangers Ganduje’s Appointment

A surge of anger amongst Nigerians, particularly on social media, has been sparked by recent rumors about the prospective appointment of former Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to either a ministerial position or the national chairmanship position of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The haunting recollection of a 2017 video showing Ganduje reportedly accepting cash bribes in foreign currency, adds to the public’s dissatisfaction.

Ganduje has been a hot subject on social media over the past 48 hours as Nigerians express their disgust and worry over his likely ascent to a significant position in the government. The public’s concern has further grown as a result of the recently leaked video showing him taking bribes.

In the 2017 controversy, a number of video footage that were made public by an investigative journalist showed Ganduje collecting large sums of money from an unidentified source. The shocking video startled the populace and made people doubt Nigeria’s government leadership’s dedication to fighting corruption.

“Appointing Ganduje as a minister would send the wrong message to Nigerians and the international community,” a Twitter user said. It’s crucial to respect moral principles and give people with clean histories priority.

As Nigerians wait impatiently for the official announcement, Ganduje’s rumored appointment currently rests in the political establishment’s hands. The fundamental issue is whether the legitimacy embattled Tinubu led administration will place a higher priority on the battle against corruption or risk further undermining public confidence by choosing someone who has been implicated in bribery claims.
