President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, said the Kano State Governor,  Abdullahi Ganduje enjoys immunity, hence cannot be prosecuted despite bribe allegations against him.
He also dismissed claims that his association with Ganduje has diminished his commitment to the war against corruption.

This is in reaction to the different comments that trolled his endorsement of Ganduje as the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, at a rally in Kano, on Thursday.
Buhari disclosed this in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Thursday.
According to NAN, the statement cited a number of high profile prosecution of senior government officials including that of a former Secretary to the Government and a former state governor, who is a party member and now serving term in jail, as indications of the president’s will and determination to wage the anti-corruption war without fear or favour.
It also added that Prof. Usman Yusuf, the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, is currently on administrative leave as part of President Buhari’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
The statement added that “it is sheer mischief to suggest that President Buhari is shielding anybody because of their closeness to him.
“Ganduje, as a sitting Governor, enjoys immunity from prosecution in his own right.
“Furthermore, under Nigerian laws, a suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
“In the circumstances, the matter is in court and the President has no power to dictate to the court or the Kano State House of Assembly, which is already investigating the matter, about what to do with the allegations against Ganduje.
“President’s zero tolerance for corruption has boosted and remarkably improved Nigeria’s image in the eyes of world leaders.”
