Nigeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) including the Labour Party (LP) has criticised the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for appointing Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, as its new national chairman amid allegations of corruption.

Recall that Umar Ganduje, a former governor of Kano state is yet to clear himself of the Dollar scandal he entangled himself in in 2018.

VerseNews Nigeria gathered that Umar Ganduje was accused of collecting bribe from a government contractor.

The PDP said, “By appointing Ganduje, notoriously referred to as “Gandola” by Nigerians over the infamous video of him barefacedly stuffing his gown with US Dollar notes as bribe allegedly from a contractor, while serving as Governor of Kano State, further validates that the APC is a putrid Party of embezzlers and charlatans.

“It also underscores APC’s impunity and insensitivity to the demands of honesty, integrity and moral rectitude required of public office holders.

“The PDP invites Nigerians to note that only last month, a forensic analysis by the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) confirmed that the content of the 2017 “Gandollar” viral video was not doctored.

“It speaks volume of the APC under Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu that Ganduje, who should ordinarily be under prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged bribery is rather crowned and rewarded with the position of the APC National Chairman.

“Such can only happen in a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) like the APC which, according to the former Director General of Progressive Governors’ Forum, is replete with “political bandits”.
