The wife of the Governor of Kano State, Hafsat Ganduje, has ignored an invitation by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over her involvement in a land fraud scandal. According to a report by Premium Times, she was invited by the anti-graft agency last Thursday over a petition by her eldest son, Abdulazeez. Abdulazeez had dragged his mum to the EFCC, sources familiar with the matter said, suggesting a pattern of corruptly using family access to power for private enrichment. A source said the young man had reported to the anti-graft agency that he was approached by a property developer to help facilitate the acquisition of some plots of land in Kano with some hundreds of thousands of US dollars and at least N35million as “facilitation commission.” It was further learnt that Abdulazeez said he paid the sum in dollars to his mother, Hafsat. “But three months later, (the property developer) discovered that the plots of land he wanted and had paid the first family for had been allocated to other buyers and he then requested to be refunded,” the source was quoted as saying.
