Why you should never give people second chances – Bobrisky gives advice

Controversial self-acclaimed Nigerian male barbie, Bobrisky has asked people not to give second chances to anyone they had fallen out with.

The Kano State House of Assembly investigative committee set up to probe the series of video clips showing Abdullahi Ganduje, the state’s Governor receiving bribes in dollars, has summoned the governor to appear before it on Friday.

The committee also asked the Governor to come with his lawyers if he so wishes. The committee also said that copies of the video clips showing the Governor receiving bribes in dollars were also sent to him for ‘perusal.’

A third video clip had emerged yesterday, showing the Governor wearing a black Kaftan, collecting bribe in dollars from a contractor.

Recall that two of similar videos had, before now, been released by the Editor-In-Chief of Daily Nigerian, Jaafar Jaafar, wherein the Governor was shown collecting bribes in dollars and stuffing the wads of money in his white “Agbada” also known as “babariga” cloth.

The governor had denied the videos, saying they were photo shopped. Mr. Jafar had, last week, honoured the invitation of the Kano State House of Assembly investigating the bribery scandal, where he tendered many other video clips showing the Governor collecting bribes from contractors.

However, after the third video, the Kano state Assembly investigation committee has summoned the Governor to appear before it and explain his culpability or otherwise in the video. Mujtafah Adamu, secretary of the seven-man ad-hoc Committee made this known to newsmen in Kano on Today.

He said a letter inviting the governor to appear before it was issued him on October 31, 2018.

According to him, “The letter which was signed by the Chairman of the Committee, Alhaji Baffa Danagundi and issued to the governor, is requesting his appearance and to hear the matter from his own perspective.’’

According to the letter, “You may wish to appear together with your lawyers for the hearing, and enclosed is the copy of the video clips for your perusal.”
