Ganduje Faces New Corruption Charges from Kano Anti-Graft Body

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Ganduje

The Kano State Anti-Corruption and Public Complaints Commission says it has filed fresh charges of corruption and maladministration against an ex-governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

“What is happening now is a tip of the iceberg,” the Chairman of the anti-graft commission, Muhuyi Magaji, said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday.

“As I am talking to you, we are investigating a case whereby N51.3bn local government funds were directly taking from the government coffers (and) sent to other individuals, and we traced it to people.”

Magaji alleged that the Ganduje government took N1bn from the state coffers a month to the expiration of the administration’s tenure in May 2023 but the money was sent to Bureau de Change operators and not used for road renovation as earmarked.

“We have piled series of cases. We have a case whereby N1bn in April last year (2023) was removed from government coffers under the allocation of renovating 30 roads in the metropolis and it was taken away, sent to Bureau de Change.

“We have a case of N4bn whereby it was sent from the consolidated revenue account of Kano State to an agricultural company. All these cases are before the court,” he said.

What Happens When People-Deceive-People PDP – Lifestyle Nigeria

After more than a year of dithering procrastination, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP finally got its bickering tendencies to a meeting under the aegis of the National Executive Committee, NEC last Thursday.

The meeting was the first in about 18 months, a mark far off from the provisions of the PDP constitution which stipulates that the NEC should meet at least once every quarter.

The delay in meeting was underpinned by the lack of vigour in the opposition party which has seen the once vibrant party swimming in the doldrums. The lack of inertia has been variously attributed to a compromised leadership alleged to be remotely controlled by internal sabouters working in cahoots with strategists of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

For those with PDP DNA in their system, it was eerie that the once-dominant political party could have been so swept aside to the point of irrelevance in the polity.

While the state of inertia was salutary to the strategic plots of some within the party, many others with the desire to keep the party as a firm hotbed for the crystallisation of the Nigerian dream as originally intended picked up the courage to seek a change of direction for the PDP.

Commendation must be especially given to Segun Sowunmi who took the effort of taking the party to court to observe its constitution by holding the NEC meeting.

That court move was what finally compelled the party to hold the NEC meeting last Thursday.

The Ambassador Umar Damagum-led National Working Committee, NWC had in the opinion of some been seen as a parrot of the Nyesom Wike-led tendency.

FirstBank MD/CEO Adesola Adeduntan Resigns

Adesola Adeduntan, who served as the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of First Bank of Nigeria Ltd, has resigned from his position.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that he was appointed as the CEO of First Bank in 2016 and his tenure was expected to end on December 31, 2024. However, he voluntarily decided to step down on April 20, 2021.

In a letter addressed to Tunde Hassan-Odukale, the bank’s board chairman, Adeduntan expressed his gratitude towards the board of directors of First Bank and FBN Holdings for the support he received from them during his tenure.

“As you are aware, my contract would be expiring on 31 December 2024 after which I would no longer be eligible for employment within the Bank having served as the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of FirstBank for a record time of nine years,” Adeduntan said.

“During this period the Bank and its subsidiaries has undergone significant changes and broken new grounds. We have repositioned the institution as an enviable financial giant in Africa.

“I have however decided to proceed on retirement with effect from 20 April 2024 to pursue other interests.”

Prior to his appointment as CEO, he served as the bank’s executive director and chief financial officer (CFO).

Before joining First Bank in July 2014, Adeduntan was a director and the pioneer CFO/business manager of Africa Finance Corporation (AFC). He also worked as a senior vice-president and CFO at Citibank Nigeria Limited, as a senior manager in the financial services group of KPMG Professional Services, and as a manager at Arthur Andersen Nigeria.
