EFCC witch hunting Kwankwaso – NNPP

The National Youth leader of the New Nigerian People’s Party, Auwal Musa, has described the EFCC investigation on the former Kano State Governor, Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso, as a political witch-hunt.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Kaduna that the action was instigated by some political rivals to tarnish Kwankwaso’s image.

“I challenge EFCC to come out with facts on the allegations, otherwise, we consider it as an attempt to witch-hunt and victimise him,” he said.

The leader further argued that there was no justification for EFCC to commence investigation of Kwankwaso from 2015 to 2023 as a former Governor and leader of NNPP.

“Why did the EFCC wait this long to investigate him, nine years after leaving office and also why investigate party affairs,” Musa asked.

According to him, investigating an ‘honest and hardworking’ person like Kwankwaso will only amount to a waste of time.

“Go to Kano and see what he did as a governor, check his records as a Defence Minister, and a Senator,” he said.

Musa urged EFCC to disregard any petition written against Kwankwaso by any politician or any associate.
