The video, which was posted on Twitter by Daily Nigerian shows Ganduje receiving money from some people.
The Kano state Governor was later seen hiding the money in his native wear and in an envelope.
Kano state Govt reacts
In its reaction, the Kano state Government dismissed the video describing it as a blackmail tool.
According to Daily Nigerian, the Kano state commissioner for information, Muhammad Garba said “We wish to state that there is no iota of truth to these allegations and if indeed there is any such alleged video, it is at best cloned.
“The government of Kano state is taking this matter seriously, and will exploit every appropriate and legal avenue to ensure that it gets to the root of the matter and the perpetrators are brought to book.”
15 to 25 percent kickbacks
Some contractors who spoke to Daily Nigerian also revealed that the Kano Governor receives 15 to 25 percent bribe from every contract carried out in the state.
A source who agreed to work on the 10-month operation said he chose to be part of the project so corruption can be exposed in Nigeria.
“If my aim is to blackmail or extort the governor, I would have used the videos get over a billion settlement or force the governor to pay the hundreds of millions of naira the state is owing my company or force him to pay back all the money I paid him as kickbacks.
“We believe if public office holders are exposed, there will be sanity in the system even if I will not be the beneficiary in future,” the source added.
